This was our first experience of old timber in the USA and it was an amazing experience. The tree is over 2000 years old and you can drive through it. Lots of fun photo opportunities, we were there late in the afternoon on a quiet day so it was quite quick to drive through and get some photos, I would... More

We arrived at the Chandelier tree and I was in AWE....I love it, we have a 2011 Ford Flex and was able to drive right through the tree. Stopped in the middle and took pictures of ourselves and vehicle in the middle of the tree. It was definately a wonderful experience and I highly recommend going.

Paid a fee to get in (It's private). The road takes you right there. We had to bend our mirrors in to get through. LOL Quite interesting to drive through. There is a store there that has many souvenir items. Fun looking around. I'm not sure if you could get a wheel chair in the store; step and tight inside.... More

The attractions weren't too crowded. We could relax and enjoy ourselves. Spent allot of time walking around, exploring the area around all the stops.

My wife and son wanted to see this, and I am glad we did. We did the PCH the day before, and drove to Napa Valley after, so this was our turning point. 2400 yrs old tree. Amazing! It is fun to go through and have another take a picture. You can keep going through letting others drive. One of... More

This is definitely an old fashioned "tourist trap" sort of place. But, I think it only cost $5. The bigger expense is the time spent waiting in line to drive through the tree. Most people get out of their car for a snapshot of their car idling in the tree-tunnel. The gift shop is pretty big. And, the ice cream... More

If you have seen pictures of this, of course you want to stop to photograph your vehicle going through this tree. Just check to see how long the wait is-you wouldn't think it would take too long to snap a photo and get out, but some folks really want to take their time. We waited in our car for an... More

Enjoy the Beauty of the Redwoods, drive through the massive tree, and when you come through the other side there is a pond with the biggest and loudest croaking bullfrogs. The kids will love it!

Was a perfect photo opportunity and a hokey activity that was well worth it! We didn't have to wait in line for too long. There were great picnic spots that were clean. A big field for kids to run around and a giant pond full of jumping frogs, which was very entertaining to watch! Highly recommend!
