Cheap to get in. Fun signs with facts about red woods here and there. There's 2 cute "tree houses" for kids to climb in for 10 or so minutes. A "drive on" redwood which is....weird but people did it! It's a fallen over redwood they put a ramp on so you can drive up it. A "walk through red wood"... More

$6 per car to get in. Drive through tree very narrow, so we did not try it in a rental car, but still cool to see. Drive on log and treehouses were neat to see.

We recently visited this drive through tree and were pretty sure our van would not make it through the tree. We were hopeful when the van was lower than the max height. The van was just too wide. The bypass area is very small. It was cool to get a picture.

I think that most road side attractions are really silly but one of the things my husband and I decided we would do was stop at a drive through tree attraction so we could have a fun photo op. The one we landed at was Shrine drive through tree. I'm sure it was overpriced for what it was but we... More

6 bucks to drive through a Redwood isn't too bad. It's a tight squeeze in an suv but after pulling in the mirrors I made it ok. The rest of the things in the park are geared toward little kids. The gift shop is ok, but has the same stuff as every other one kn the area. The older German... More

This is one stop not to make when travelling along the Avenue of Giants - just save your time and money and keep going. Should have done our homework on TA for this one. The Drive Through Tree is a tourist Honey pot or money grab, conveniently located behind a secure entry and boundary fence your not really sure what... More

Not as easy as it looks, but good fun trying to drive a Dodge through a three thousand year old Redwood. For six dollars this is worth the money. A charming little gift shop too. I can say I did it!!!

We didn't have a line but we went mid day - mid week so I think that helped. There wasn't anyone there to take our money (bring cash with you!) so we paid at the drop box and drove in. The tree easily fit the Subaru Legacy we were driving and it is fun to say we did it. If... More

We drove past and at the insistence of my 13 year old daughter, we turned around, paid our $6.00 and drove through. We had to wait about 20 minutes as there was a line of cars. It was nothing spectacular, but then again, how often do you get to drive through a tree? You should probably check it out.
