Proof...

Some time back I posted a pic of the drive through tree in Leggett, CA. The pic I posted showed my tree as if I'd just driven through the tree... I had backed up to the tree to get the pic and didn't drive through... which I clearly said in my post. However, some posted that they doubted that you could actually drive through the tree in the first place. I was up that way over the weekend and took the 2 pics in the attachments. The second pic is a GMC 2500 HD 4wd that has the same dimensions as my Chevy 2500. I was shocked that the truck fit through... even with the mirrors folded. The guy had less than 1/2 inch clearance on his sides, but got through. I'm not brave enough to try my truck though... let someone else risk THEIR truck.

My mom has a picture of her as a girl going through that tree with my grandma and grandpa I think.

Roadkill, isn't there a few other redwoods you can do this at? I remember going w/ my aunt and uncle when I was younger thru two trees on the same road, w/ in miles of each other. It may be my memory fading as maybe we turned around or something and came thru the same tree, but I thought this was common sometimes on some of the side roads.

2008 700xx; Power Bomb header with power core 4 exhaust, Power Programmer III, pro armor nerfs, prm products control front and rear bumpers and full skid, 10" ITP rears, ITP Baja's fronts, RZR 2's all the way around, Uni filter, 13t sprocket, CCP steering Damper, DS450 shock swap, Dual Gasser Throttle, bar risers and Moose barkBusters. 730XX kit plus other engine mods!

It's possible.... according to the internet, this is not the only redwood you can drive through.

I've driven through that tree too. Saw many trucks/SUVs driving through it. It's a big tourist trap, but it's still cool.

This is at about the half way point when I go up to Eureka, CA to ride. Costs $5.00 to get in, but it's a good place to rest my tired butt from the drive. This time there were a big bunch of German tourists there.

When I was there last summer, there was a large bus full of Asian tourists. The drive to the giftshop and the "drive-through-tree" is neat as well. Lots of beautiful old-growth trees.

Haven't gone to the "Trees of Mystery" yet though.
