After a long day of hiking (and getting lost) in the Redwood Forest, this was a fun activity. After all, how many people can say they've driven through a tree? It makes a great photo.

We traveled in our RV and although we knew it wouldn't fit, we decided to walk through. The cost is $4 for a carload or $3 for each walk up, weird. There are a couple of really cool tree houses carved out of a tree, the kids will enjoy checking those out. We walked through the tree and took pictures,... More

OK, you've come THIS FAR and think the $6 is steep and/or that this is a scam???!!! Really??? Come On! Live a little and have some fun! Kids and adults alike will get a kick out of driving THROUGH the tree! We had the sunroof open and the kids were sticking out the top and trying to reach the sides... More

How can you not come to the Redwoods and get a picture of yourself driving your car through a tree? This is a once in a lifetime event and one of the cool but quirky things to do along the redwood coast. We made it through in an Equinox with little trouble. Half of the fun is watching people panic... More

After driving through "Avenue of Giants" ,we visited " SHRINE DRIVE THRU TREE " at MYERS FLAT ,CA , which gave us a thrilling driving experience of driving through a giant Red Wood tree 3000 years old with a height of 175 feet, diameter 21 feet and circumference 64 feet. There is an entry fee of 6$ and a waiting... More

This is one of those classic things you have to do on a road trip. We drove through in a Chevrolet Equinox and fit through with a little breathing room. Don't forget to fold in your mirrors. We arrived after 7pm and there were only a couple of other cars. Don't rush through as you may never get to do... More

Where I am from, driving through a tree is often a fatal experience, as it means one was hit at a high rate of speed. In California, it is a tourist trap. As other reviewers noted, the tree was dying, but like all other redwoods, new sprouts were coming off of the base. Everyone should drive through a tree once.... More

If you are even within a half hour to an hour of the Shrine Tree, it is an absolute must do for one of those touristy trap visits. It costs $6 to drive your car through the tree. Yes, it sounds corny, but how cool is that to be able to actually "drive" through a tree! Well, worth the $6.

We read the reviews before coming here, but you know what... it's one of those things you pay the $6 for you do it once and then you NEVER have to do it again. We thought my daughter would get a kick out of it and she did. I unbuckled her from her booster put her on my lap and... More
