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

This was a nice little iconic jaunt and we had fun driving through the tree. We had a mini van though and the mirrors were a problem. They luckily folded right in and we made it through to the little gift shop on the other side for our commemorative flattened penny. They really should have something you can drive between... More

I’d save the $5 entrance fee on this one. The tree can handle a smaller compact car, but frankly, I found more impressive trees and groves along the Avenue of the Giants (south of Eureka) and in the scenic drive through Redwood National Park (between Eureka and Crescent City).

This was actually kind of fun. We were looking for something a little different to break up the drive heading south and this was perfect. We arrived early and only had a 1 car wait before our turn. The Mrs. jumped out and took the pic's as you will find it hard to do that once you are stopped in... More
