About 185 miles North of San Francisco following the scenic 101 Hwy, 10 miles South of Leggett, CA we followed the Drive Thru Tree Road Exit to get to Chandelier Drive-Thru Tree Park.. Drive-thru tree?? That certainly was enough to get our attention. The 6′ wide by 6’9″ space carved through this towering redwood back in the 1930′s really is large enough to fit a vehicle through. Admittedly, it’s going to be a tight squeeze for a van but when we folded our side mirrors inward, our Honda Odyssey had just enough room to squeeze through.
There are a total of three Redwood drive through trees in Northern, CA along highway 101. All 3 are on private property and charge a fee for admission.
Another fun little detour is Campbell Bros World Famous Confusion Hill, built back in 1949, where you can experience odd and confusing optical contradictions in the World Famous Gravity House. “Seeing is Believing,” is their slogan and when you see this crooked little shack off the side of the hill and struggle to walk around inside, you can experience the mystery of why gravity is not what it would appear.
