We went and saw this tree. We were headed up the coast and saw signs and decided to stop. It was a nice weekday and the guy at the ticket booth said there as as solid hour plus... read more

The guy at the ticket booth needs to be a little more honest. We were more than willing to pay to go in, even if he had been honest enough to tell us we were too wide to get through the tree without tearing something up. All he said is you are short enough to get through the tree, and... More

Such a great experience! We have always watched this attraction on tv and I could not wait to experience it! The place is so nice and the fee is only 5 dlls! My husband drove thru it and I was the one taking pictures! The place offers such a good sight seen area!! Super clean and beautiful place!

Ok, so I'm a little biased. I grew up in Leggett and the Drive Thru Tree holds many fond memories for me. As an adult it is still one of my most favorite places to spend time in the beautiful redwoods. There is something very magical about the way the afternoon light streams through the trees. I love watching the... More

If you're in the area you must do this. It's just too bizarre to let it pass by. And then there is the pleasure of watching the giant SUVs scrape the side view mirrors. Don't pass up the gift shop.

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!
