After our long windy drive from Fort Bragg through the redwoods, how could we not visit the drive thru tree? It was exactly as expected, a tree that you could drive through. I was glad there was no line or anything so it literally only added $5 and 5 minutes to our trip. I'm glad we did it, no need... More

Not a whole lot to say about this - it's a tree and you drive through it. It's cool because it's a novelty. Don't go on a weekend when there are a lot of tourists around or you will have to wait in a line for a long time to go through the tree. I went on a weekday and... More

We stopped at this tree on our trip to the redwoods. It was a great start to our visit. My nieces loved driving through the tree. This is the place to stop, don't bother with any others.

Drove up from San Fran which was along drive to see this tree. It was a 3 hour drive. $5 was very reasonable admission per car load. Very cool to see such old trees. Drove thru the tree twice. Great picture opportunities. Only bad part was driving back to SF.

Okay, a big tree? Familiar story, especially in Redwood country. A big tree that's really old? Same thing. A tree you can drive through? Now there's a nice twist. And people have been driving through this tree for many many years. It was way cooler than either of us expected. A nice old piece of Americana, attached to memories of... More

I bought a new Harley in Seattle just so I could ride it back to Florida. I couldn't pass this up. This was so cool . The redwoods are amazing! Words can't explain them. If your in the area you must see these trees. Someone from Germany ran up to me and asked if I wanted them to take my... More

Yeah, we drove through the tree, and yeah, we took photos for another family of tourists and they returned the favor. While that was all very predictable, what we really enjoyed was the gift shop. It has some of the usual fare but mostly unusually interesting stuff! I bought a high quality redwood barrel fountain pen for $39 and use... More

I decided to turn off highway 101 to drive thru the drive thru tree, the Chandelier Tree, near Leggett in Redwood country in Northern California. It was a beautiful area surrounding the tree. The lady at the place to pay the fee only suggested to collapse the rear view mirrors before driving thru. It worked just fine. After going thru... More

As a little child from foreign land, I saw a picture of a car driving through a tree and I thought....maybe one day I will see it and drive through it. I did just that. One of my bucket list is checked. Becareful not to drive with your big cars, no truck, Large Suv or wide cars. It would not... More
