Astounding 2,400 year old tourist attraction... a tree.

Even with pictures it's hard to believe that one can drive through a living tree 2,400 years old. The redwoods really are things of wonder. We did not have to wait in the line... read more

We stopped at two drive through trees along the Avenue of the Giants. The first stop was fun but the first tree we drove through was a dead tree. This Chandelier Drive-Through tree was much better as the tree was huge and still alive. There was no line when we were there and the cost was only $5. Look up... More

Even with pictures it's hard to believe that one can drive through a living tree 2,400 years old. The redwoods really are things of wonder. We did not have to wait in the line to drive through for very long (about 20 minutes) as we went during the week. It had been said weekend days you could wait much longer.... More

We landed in Sacramento and on our drive on Avenue of Giants we came across the Chandelier Drive-through Tree. So myself, husband and 2 sons 25 & 22 decided to go off our route and see it. First off it's not far off of 101, so easy and quick to get to. What a blast. The girl taking our $5... More

We paid a $5.00 fee to enter the area and it is worth it! The trail to the drive thru tree is enchanting. We discovered wood sculptures of bear, fish, squirrel, owl, eagle, etc. in the forest. Very nice! Then we came upon the drive thru tree. The area is nice for groups to come to as well. There was... More

We drove thru the Chandelier Tree, a huge redwood tree in northern California. A lot of fun for $5.00. The short drive through the woods was enhanced by awesome wood carvings of forest animals placed among these majestic trees. The gift shop was great with many intetesting trinkets for sale. Everyone should see this attraction!

This is a road side I remember a child, it was fun to see again. Fee is $5.00 per car, note larger SUVs will not fit, our Ford Escape was fine. They have tables that make a great picnic stop. The bathrooms could use a bit of updating.

ive been wanting to drive thru a tree like this and finally I was able to. It was fun driving thru the thousand years old tree and driving like you're in the middle of the forest. You can do it as many times as you want to. Too bad there was this couple driving a 2015 Toyota Sequioa and it... More

Looks great in brochures, but upon arrival, they'll take your $5.00, smiling as they know your vehicle cannot fit. If you drive a Ford Explorer or similar vehicle, even with mirrors turned inward, you cannot drive through. Here's an idea---put a representative cut-out of the opening (made of paper or styrofoam, or another flexible material) at the entrance gate---if you... More

We made the most of our time here despite the fact that it was beyond busy due to the holiday weekend. Apparently this is the busiest weekend of the year. Note to self, avoid it on July 4th weekend. Also, follow the signs, as our GPS sent us in the wrong direction!

How many people can say they have driven through a tree! For $5 you can drive your car through a 2,400 year old tree. Pretty touristy, but still fun. Something you have to say you did if you are in the Redwood parks. We only did the drive through, but there is a gift shop and picnic tables for people... More
