Drive Through a Tree? Why not!!

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... read more

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

We enjoyed the drive through tree. We only waited while three cars in front of us went through and frankly it was fun to watch so many people get such a kick out of the tree. The entire experience was like a blast from the past.

Cost was $5 per car to see the tree. If you do not have a smaller vehicle, you won't be able to drive through the tree and must take a different path. There is a gift shop and pond, and not much else. Would not recommend if in a large truck or suv.

just like my childhood memories, It was cool to look for my dad's and his dad's initials in the tree. (even though I find it appaling that they marked up a landmark! LOL

We took the 1 up from Fort Bragg all the way to the end at the 101, and that was a fun drive, and since we were in the area decided to see if we could fit through the tree in our SUV! It was pretty much what we expected - $5 for a nice little scenic drive through their... More

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
