Once you have driven thru the tree, you can pick up some charmingly kitschy souvenirs in the gift shop, picnic in the pretty meadow overlooking the duck pond, or stretch your legs on the hiking trails that wend through the surrounding redwoods before getting back in your car.
If you haven’t gotten your fill of redwoods, stop in at the Smithe Redwoods State Natural Reserve just a few miles north of Leggett, where you’ll find a beautiful grove of redwoods, a waterfall, and swimming in the Eel River.
The Chandelier Tree is located at 67402 Drive Thru Tree Rd. in Leggett. It is open year-round except for Thanksgiving and Christmas. Call 707-925-6464 for hours; they vary according to the season but are generally 8:30 am to 5:30 pm in the winter and 8:30 am to 8:00 pm in the summer. Summer is the most popular time to visit, and you may encounter lines during those months. The cost is $10 per car.
