Fun excursion in Klamath, California was wonderful fun. We paid only $5 for a chance to take about 50 pictures with a truly massive redwood while our Kia was parked inside the tree. Unfortunately they no longer have a gift shop so no momento's or further brochures were available. Lady at gate was extremely pleasant though. Would recommend Chandelier Tree first due to availability of souvenirs and info but for the money it was much better than Shrine Tree. Would definitely do again.

You need to pay $10 to get in, but it's a fun place to test your dirving skill :-). We came in an RV, so it's a no-brainer, but we still stayed for about 30 minutes watching other cars/vans/SUVs getting through or giving up. The kids are exceited :-)

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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 place is impossible to find. There's a big sign on 101 South indicating to exit for the Drive -Thru Tree but then nothing else. Did someone steal the other directional signs?

Anyway - here's how you get there. Take the Terwer Valley exit off Highway 101 South and turn left at the stop sign. You'll see a little tiny yellow shed with a little tiny sign in 1/4 mile on the left. It's across from an emu farm. Type "430 Highway 169, Klamath, CA 95548" into your GPS. This is the address for the house that is located right next to the tree entrance. I'm guessing it belongs to the owners.

There was no one working the shed where you pay. We put our $5 into the slot because the little sign said "We trust you to pay" and we sure didn't want bad karma at the start of a new year.

We were the only ones at the tree for at least 45 minutes so we took lots of photos of the car and the tree, me and the tree, hubby and the tree, and, of course, the dogs and the tree.

Dimensions of the tree are 7'4" wide & 9'6" high. The tree itself is still a healthy living redwood tree.

Kitschy, roadside attraction fun!
