Our family was visiting from Illinois last week, so we went up to the Avenue of the Giants and we simply had to go here to drive through the Chandelier Drive-Through Tree. With the photos taken, my family will have a great picture for their Christmas card this year!

Even if it was done some time ago, I still find odd that such a stupid act as cutting in a tree for the sake of driving thru it (What was in those people's head?) is widely advertised instead of being SERIOUSLY frowned upon as should any such cruel idea.

It's one of the must do things to do if you are in the area. There is a nice pond a few steps from the tree. Gift shop is good if you are looking to buy some local stuff. We got water and pop from there.

The drive-thru redwood tree is one of those tacky tourist attractions you HAVE to visit. It only costs $5.00 but just to say you've been there, done that is worth it. There's a gift shop located there as well which has a lot of locally-made souvenirs which I prefer buying instead of the "Made in China" variety. There's also a... More

Drive Thru Tree Park is a great experience for those folks who are just passing through and don't have time to more fully experience the Redwoods. At $5 per car it is truly a bargain! The gravel road adds to the experience keeping things as rustic as possible. A truly unique spot to stop and stretch out the legs!

Always wanted to do this ! Tree seems smaller than I expected but the compact hire car got through with the wing mirrors folded. Gift shop full of things you wish you had never bought, but hey it was worth $5, and much better than the shrine drive thru tree up the road!

I loved this stop. We spent almost an hour here stretching our legs and walking around. You certainly could just go in and take your photos look around and be gone in less time. The entrance greeter and gift shop attendant were very nice. It didn't take us long to go through and get the pictures we wanted. It was... More

I've always wanted to see the giant trees and drive through one so this was a must on my list to do during a road trip to California. Cute little gift shop too!

It was fun driving thru the tree! Our car barely fit and it cost $5 but it was worth the experience and the picture taking experience.
