Easy to get to as it was right on the Avenue of Giants. You get plenty of time to drive through and take pictures. So much fun to do!! A perfect "touristy" stop that was definitely worth the money!

Although this place is small and the area youndrive through does have tight turns, most regular cars will fit through the tree. My oversized Jeep fit just fine. The price was more than reasonable for the experience and the gift shop was beautiful and had...More

$8 to drive through a tree? Yep and worth it for the cheesy photos that our kids will cherish of our family trip. Just a short stop, but lots of fun!
