Kinda cool to see this, but good luck driving through (unless your in a compact car). We were in a Tahoe, and after watching a small car hit the tree on the way through, we declined to try. We also watched 2 other SUV's come in to the park and choose to backing up rather than try going through the... More

Went on a road trip with some friends and decided to drive through a tree it's a unique experience the nice thing about the shrine tree is after you go through you can walk back into the tree and look out the top gives you a whole new perspective on the size. I had a half of an inch of... More

Shrine Drive-through Tree was along our route so we stopped. It was interesting and a nice place to get out and walk around before hitting the road again.

If you're in Redwood country, you've got to do it. Drive through a tree. It really was neat! Since it was slow that morning (we were the only ones there) we drove through, backed up and drove through again. As others have noted, bring cash. There's a few other attractions at the site, but main event is the drive-through tree.... More

Drove through this and the Chandelier tree on our trip. Both an interesting experience. Come with cash to pay at the gate; I believe a drive through was about $6.

Amazing experience to drive through a tree. I had a Ford Explorer hire car and asked the guy on the till if it would fit okay and he assured me there was no problem. With the wing mirrors turned in I made it with about an inch to spare on either side, literally inching forward. Fun though.

You want to drive through a tree. You know you do. You may not have realized it until just now, you may not have thought about it before, but now that you have, you know you want to. Well, here is your chance. There are three drive through trees in northern California, but this is the only naturally occurring one,... More

Absolutely ridiculous, and the funnest four seconds you'll have along the Avenue of the Giants. There's a TON of these drive-through trees in the area, but what I like about this one is that (as far as I can tell) the opening through the tree is natural; it wasn't carved up by a bunch of dudes with chainsaws. This is... More

what a COOL experience! the tree is HUGE, and there is no fast ride through it. not saying that it is a tight squeeze, but if you have wide mirrors, you need to fold them in. I was just tickled pink as we actually DROVE THROUGH a tree. it looked so COOL on the inside. when we went into the... More

Just like it says, this is a drive through tree. DO NOT BE FOOLED; you do not drive around it or over it, but actually through it. It costs $6 I think, and this price also includes the Drive On Log, which is, yep, you guessed it, a log that you drive on top of. Great place to make out.
