A popular attraction, there were many out-of-state visitors, and a van from Germany!!! Worth the visit, with no wait mid-day in late June, & beautiful grounds to view or have a picnic on.

Driving through a tree is a great in a fully insured rental car. Very touristy but was fun and I can now say I have driven through a redwood. Would never need to do it again.
