Wasn't sure about this one, but I'm glad we did it. Looks like a joke from the road but it's worth the 6 bucks. Drove through the tree barely (2015 explorer) looked up in the middle straight to the blue sky. Went in the wood houses afterwards fun even made it to the second story of the first one. Nice...

You don't have to be a kid to enjoy this place, How fun is it to say you drove thru a huge Redwood, But make sure you read the sign before taking your car thru, Not all will fit. We were in a truck, so we just got out and took pics of standing inside the tree, Really the best... More

As if just being in the redwoods isn't awe inspiring, being in the middle of a redwood tree let's you know just how big they are, or how tiny we are.

The side mirrors on my car don't fold in and we barely fit with a little bit of scraping on the mirrors. But for only 6 bucks I felt like it was worth it. There's some other neat carvings and a couple of play-houses carved out of logs that are worth seeing. They also have a neat gift shop with... More

We pulled in and paid the fee. The attendant was very cordial and explained what all the attractions were. We drove through the tree, got pictures and then pulled up onto the ramped driveway on a fallen tree. We parked in the lot and walked through the tree and then checked out some neat tree-houses made out of cut off... More

It's $6 to drive thru the tree naturally split. I must be blind cause I didn't see all the cables ???? It's a tight squeeze so any bigger trucks , vans , etc don't try. It's 7 feet accross I believe. There is little tree houses for the kids to climb in and a tree you can drive up on.... More

It cost like 6 dollars to do this and it was not quite what we expected it to be. It was not really along the way but more like a small touristy spot. It felt not very genuine at all.

Our family capped off an exciting three weeks in Oregon with the worst experience from this tourist trap! If you have an suv don't even bother trying to drive through the tree! The gentleman at the front was so clueless he didn't bother to mention that my Acura MDX might not make it through. We made it one third of... More

It is worth the stop for the photo opportunity, but I wouldn't go far out of our way. Our teenager loved it. It is a tight squeeze and we were in a compact car.

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
