We just came from the Redwood forests in Northern California. They are magnificent. But you must pay $15 or more to drive your car through a tree. This is just as much fun.. and it’s totally free. We went through it twice. No one else...More

When you plan a visit to the park, one of the iconic photos you see in all the literature, is a Model "A" driving through Tunnel Log. And you say to yourself, "I want to do that". Well, on September 27, 2018, I DID!!

It’s a place you see in many photographs and so we went to have a look but once you’ve driven through it and taken a picture, that’s about it.

The road is very narrow for 2 way traffic but once there it was cool to drive through the tree. The kids enjoyed it! It is right by Moro Rock.

In the summer, on weekends, you have to take the tram. We visited on a weekday, so we could get our picture of us in the car, driving under the tree,.... both directions. This is right next to Moro rock.

This is not worth the drive just for it. If you have time, great, but don’t go out of your way - with starving children - just to drive through a tree that’s fallen down. It’s just a quick photo opp. If you can take...More

When we visited there was no problem driving there. Suggest you call the visitors center for up to date info. Or go to the park website to see any construction updates.
