Fun Touristy thing - but be prepared to wait...and wait

This was right along our path of our summer road trip this year. I had to stop as I'd always wanted to 'drive through' a redwood tree. It costs $5 for a car to enter the park. Be... read more

This was something to see, but seeing a picture is almost like being there. The tree is a giant sequoia, not a redwood. It is a huge and old tree and cars drive through it, but you may have to wait a while. Its something to see, but not an over the top attraction. If you have a larger vehicle... More

This was right along our path of our summer road trip this year. I had to stop as I'd always wanted to 'drive through' a redwood tree. It costs $5 for a car to enter the park. Be prepared for a long wait though - especially during the high tourist season. People driving through and others on foot can be... More

... but your kids will love it. Apparently, one of the most-asked questions in California national/state parks is: "Where is the tree I can drive my car through?" Do the park rangers a favor. Umm, find it yourself! There are several in California, but this is the drive-through which my Dad took our family to in his Rambler American. And... More

We loved the Chandelier Tree. Can't have a trip to the Redwoods without it! Best to just have fun and be patient if there is a line. Enjoy your chance to drive through and take some fun pics. Gift shop with picnic tables and decent restrooms made it worth the stop.

Made a stop at this tree on the way to the Avenue of The Giants when I noticed the sign on the road for the drive thru tree and decided to make the detour. It was worth the detour and not to far off the route. There is a $5.00 per car admission and one road in the approximate one... More

If you are into silly tourist things to do in Northern California, this should be on your list. Embarrassingly commercial but campy fun all at the same time. Remarkable how the tree remains alive after all these years. After paying $5 you wait in your car as the vehicles in front slowly progress through the tree. Everyone stops just beyond... More

The name describes it all. - a big redwood tree with a hole cut in the middle big enough for a car to drive through. It fun. There are other big logs on the property worth climbing on and around.

This place is over three hours from San Francisco. The gift shop is small so was packed with all the visitors. The ticket you receive when you pay the five dollar entrance fee is also a coupon for the gift shop. The surrounding area is beautiful and the visitors were all friendly and understanding ( everyone stops to take pics... More

Totally touristy, but so fun! Spend the $5.00 and do it. You will never forget the experience...or the experience or watching people in cars too big barely squeeze thru. Great little gift shop and area to walk around.
