This is a must do while in the redwoods! The history behind this and everything in this area is great. It is also close enough to walk from our campground.

Well organized, was $6/car to enter and we had enough time to take pictures. It does look like there was some carving and reinforcement that was done on the tree to make sure it is ok to drive through.

This must be a very popular attraction, we had to wait in line a half hour. It was kind of cool, but not really worth the wait.

While visiting the Redwoods we knew we had to visit a drive through tree because this isn't something we are used to seeing from where I come from. It is definitely worth the $5 to come up and drive through. There are also some other attractions around the gift shop that the kids would enjoy and provide a great photo... More

This is a cool thing to see. Its one of those things that you have to see at least once, especially if you are just in the area. There is usually a really long, slow moving line because every person likes to sit inside the tree, then get out at take a picture. If you only want to stop to... More

Well, we were the dummies who always thought the drive-through tree was at Humboldt Redwoods State Park, free of charge, and an awesome welcome to the park. Not so. You need to find it at a private property "park" and pay $6. Since we came all the way from Texas to see this, we had to drive through it. I... More

I think it's kind of silly that they charge you to drive through a tree. It's $5 per car, so not so bad. Everyone likes to stop and take pictures as they go through so don't be surprised if you have to wait in line. The gift shop is awesome. So many knick knacks.

You have to see this otherwise you will not believe it. You can drive thru a tree which is 3000 years old. You should pay $6 to enter which is absolutely worth it.

The other reviewers are right -- there's a drive-through tree that you pay $6 to go through. End of story. The rest of the "attraction" is filler (a walk-through tree, two treehouses). Save your money and go to the State Forest's visitor center instead and take the free driving tour along the Avenue of the Giants.
