Drive-thru tree

Unique & fun experience. Easy to get to & not very time consuming. We didn't go into gift shop. Were only there for the tree. Well worth the $5. fee

We've been here before, but this time, we also stopped at the Shrine Drive Thru Tree. I've got to say that the Chandelier Tree is MUCH, MUCH better! First off, it's a living tree (Shrine tree is not living any longer) & the ease of the drive-thru is laid out much better for driving & taking pictures. We've taken a... More

We stopped at a different drive-thru tree prior to coming across this one - and this one was definitely "cooler". Lots of park space to run around in too.

My Family has gone up there for years. Started with my Momma and I and when people would come out to visit this was one of your first stops up in the Redwoods... Seens then I have taken my own kids and husband there and just was there with my BEST Friend and her daughter who had never been there... More

A lot of people think this is too touristy and a waste of time. I thought it was cool to drive through a tree. My son loved it. This is one thing, if you have the opportunity, to do once in your life.

We stopped off here for a breather. Kids loved it, beautiful scenery, loved watching the giant bullfrogs in the pond. Stayed for a couple hours exploring. Tree is huge, be prepared though, if you drive a larger vehicle (we drive a yukon Denali) you won't be able to drive through, and there's a line of people waiting while others pull... More

If you're in the area it's almost mandatory that you visit here to drive through the giant redwood. It costs $5.00 and is so worth it! We found that our SUV wouldn't fit unless the mirrors were closed. Love this little site!

This was as amazing as the photos posted on the Internet. We were there when it was relatively quiet, so could drive through or take a bike through the tree as many times as we wanted. Park attached was great for kids to run around and there was also an excellent gift shop. Your ticket to get into the attraction... More

I always say that I am fine with tourist traps as long as I know ahead of time that it is a tourist trap. This is a tourist trap, but a trap worth at least one visit. You pay $5 to get in the park. You drive a short distance to the tree. You can either drive through or veer... More

What a real special place. We had never seen a Giant Redwood let alone stand inside one! Even though we felt our van was not going to fit if we tried to drive thru The Chandelier Tree, standing inside it was just if not more awesome! We enjoyed it. Besides with all the crazy wildfires that have been happening every... More
