The drive thru tree, to me, stands as one of the iconic American road trip experiences alongside Route 66, Wall Drug, Rock City, South of the Border, and others. There is not much to it, you tuck your side windows in and gingerly drive thru a narrow tree chute. If you are expecting more, I'm not sure what you saw that would lead you to believe that is the case. I went in early May on a weekday afternoon and was the only car there. I took a good 5 or so passes through with plenty of photos and videos. I can see this possibly being a pain in a busier tourist season though. The good news is that it is always open. There is a donation box when the admission station is unmanned. So you could go early in the morning or late in the evening and possibly have a better shot at an uncrowded experience. The bottom line is: if you love roadside lore, you have to stop. No excuses.

If you visit the redwoods you really should drive through this tree. It’s worth the $5 experience. Whoever owns this tree has a gold mine. The pay booth was unmanned and we had to cram our $5 bill into the overflowing money box.

On our trip we drove through 3 different trees and this one was our least favorite. The main thing we liked about this one was it wasn't crowded. The hole in the tree is about the same as the Chandelier drive through tree but this one doesn't have a nice park around it. You drive up to the entrance and pay $5 (CASH) then drive through the tree. Thats it. Its cool for one time but I wouldn't do it again.

When you visit the Redwoods, you just have to drive through a tree! The rental company upgraded us to a huge Ford Expedition that made it through with barely an inch to spare on either side, but hubby's driving skills were top-notch while I took pics. Just past the entrance, there's also a small restroom that's inside a tree. Fun, quick stop!

I thought it would be cool to drive through a tree, so we stopped here on our recent vacation. It is $5 for a vehicle or you can walk or ride a bike for cheaper. I had to help guide my husband through the tree as it was a tight fit for our rented Nissan Kicks. There was only one other car trying to drive through the tree on the Friday morning we went.

After hitting the drive-through tree in Myers flat a few hours earlier we thought we would give this one ago also. This one was smaller and could not make it through with our standard size soccer van. So we ended up walking through and taking some pictures. Even though it was a tad small it was still cool to see. Glad we stopped.

After visiting Trees of Mystery on August 11, 2021 and killing some time waiting for Hwy. 101 to open back up (Last Chance Grade), we stopped at the "Drive-Thru Tree" in Klamath, CA.

It was late in the day and there was nobody in the ticket booth and they requested that you just drop $5 in the slot (honor system). I put in my $5 and proceeded up the road to the drive thru tree.

Just a quick drive up the road and there it was. In order to fit our suv through, I had to pull in my mirrors and I have a feeling most newer vehicles will as well. I have a feeling more than a few vehicles and rentals have been scraped trying to fit in. We barely fit in, but we managed to take our obligatory pictures and leave. We were probably there less than 15 minutes in total.

It's definitely the cliché, old-school, 1960's thing to do with driving thru a tree when you're in redwood country, so you got to do it once, get your pictures and move on.

This is VERY overrated! We obliged and paid the requested “donation” but it is literally a tree someone has cut out to allow a vehicle to pass through. It is at the top of a short, narrow gravel driveway to a dinky “parking “ lot that barely accommodates 3 cars. No attendant or anyone trying to tame the chaos of driving through the tree in the correct direction (we were blocked for several minutes). I understand people want their picture taken as they drive through but we waited several minutes for 2 motorcycles to do a mini photo shoot! Such a disappointment!

We drove a mini van, which was a no go, TOO BIG! We backed out, and my sister and I stood in the tree hole for a picture. I think someone is getting rich. Definitely a tourist trap, right up there with Trees of Mystery. If you have $5.00 you don’t know what to spend it on, drive thru the tree.

This is an absolute must for roadside adventuring! The lady at the ticket both is awesome and it's a windy but short drive to the tree...be careful going through! Totally fun and worth a stop. You'll only need 15 minutes, so go have fun!
