It was five dollars to get in but you can't pass this historical and amazing spot up. The trees were amazing, the Chandelier Tree was very cool...worth the stop.

The Chandelier Tree in Drive Thru Tree Park is a 315 foot tall coast redwood tree in Leggett, California with a hole cut through its base to allow a car to drive through. The hole was carved in the 1930s. Fun to stop and take your picture driving through the tree. Gift shop nearby. Bring a picnic.

The tree is huge and fun to drive through and take a picture.There is a little gift shop there but Nothing else, not even very many other trees. If you want to see big trees keep going north to Richardson Grove or the various groves in Humboldt Redwoods State Park.

Fun place to snap a pic when you take your car through the chandelier tree. Or as my boyfriend said... One can drive through a redwood as you drive through the redwoods.

The couple running the attraction are friendly and the tree is real. I drove my Honda Fit through the tree,.. it barely fit! It was a fun stop on a long drive. Not too far off the main road. They had restrooms and a gift shop. A typical tourist stop.
