Well, based on the reviews here, I'm going to be in the minority. I've seen the photos of the Drive Thru tree many times, my impression was those B&W photos from the 30s, people traveling in their vehicles under this huge tree on the road, I thought we would just took this detour, drove thru the tree, then be back...

This is the best tree to visit that you can drive through. You have to pay to get in. It was 5 dollars for our car. Walk-throughs pay per person. The people are very friendly. This is the only drive through tree near the redwoods that we can get our GMC Yukon XL through. We did it with everyone around... More

As everyone says, it's a bargain at $5 to do something you can only do in America. Lots of fun driving through and watching everyone else do it and take pictures. A gift shop which time forgot, but which has snacks families need on the drive, and lots of interesting characters to watch. Well worth a stop.

The sign seemed cheesy "Drive through a Redwood $5" but the experience and photographs were priceless. We just stumbled upon this private property road side attraction near sundown and glad to have these memories and photos. Nice gift shop and friendly local woman who recommended a local Chinese restaurant.

In addition to the tree there is a small lake and trails through the redwoods that our dog loved. There is a $5 per vehicle entry fee.

We didn't even know about it, just saw the highway sign and decided to check it out. You pay 5$ at the entrance and can go through as many times you want. We drove through it in circles as long as no one else was in line and had a blast!

We drove through 3 times, and walked through too, just to get the picture right. They are ok with that :)

It was worth the $5 they charge you while entering. the place is well maintained. the drive through tree is one of its kind! however, the GPS directions are wrong. look at the road signs and follow them, u can't miss the road signs.
