It's a tree you can drive through!

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... read 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.

Driving through the Avenue of the Giants we stopped off to drive through the tree for my daughter. They don't have big trees like that in Florida!!! Drove through, stopped to take pictures and on our way. It was fun.

This was our 2nd drive through tree on a 12 day road trip. It is the only one where you drive through a natural cleft in the tree instead of a man-made tunnel which is neat. Our Suburban wouldn't fit through--which was disappointing after paying--but we stuck the nose in and took a couple pictures and then backed out. We... More

It cost $5 for a car load. We drove through it. It was less than 5 minutes but it was something to check off our list.

While we were in humboldt state park we took a small detour here and paid $6 to drive our car through a tree. My kids thought it was great. Takes less than 30 min to see everything.

This tree is not as good as the Chandelier Drive-through tree but, it has more touristy things around it. The tree leans so the opening is odd shaped and seems smaller. Also, it has a steep incline that you drive down to get to the tree. I did not try to drive through it with my car after seeing other... More

Total tourist trap and not what I expected at all. Having said that, I would absolutely do it again. Why not? It only costs $6.00 and you can take your picture under a tree. And then laugh at yourself for the next half hour :-) The Shrine tree is right off of the Ave of the Giants. Really well labeled... More

Having driven the Avenue of Giants this was a disappointing end to the afternoon. $6 is way too much for this!! The driving through the tree itself was a good enough experience, but some cars did have trouble as it's small. No where near the huge redwood I'd imagined! When we were there there was also a group of kids... More

Had to try, paid the $6, nothing much else. Pretty mediocre, kids enjoyed the tree houses, gift shop is pretty cool, full of knock knacks.

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.
