“a 2,000-year old giant Sequoia”

Visitors to Sequoia and Kings Canyon can drive through Sequoia Park's fallen "Tunnel Log" located along the Crescent Meadow Road in Giant Forest. The fallen Tunnel Log of Sequoia National Park came into being after an unnamed giant sequoia fell across the Crescent Meadow Road in late 1937 as a result of "natural causes." The following summer, a tunnel was cut through the fallen log as a visitor attraction. When it fell, the tree stood 275 feet high (83.8 meters) and was 21 feet in diameter at the base (6.4 meters). The tree's age when it fell has not been determined, but probably exceeded 2,000 years. The tunnel, which remains in use today, is 17 feet wide and 8 feet high (5.2 meters by 2.4 meters). There is a bypass for taller vehicles.

It's 8 feet tall, which is taller than most. If you still can't fit through, stop by for the photo op and then take the bypass located nearby.

This is located on Crescent Meadow Road, it's close to the Giant Forest. This is the only tree you can actually drive through in Sequoia National Park. If you have a big SUV you probably won't fit.

Cute spot to stop along the way. Takes a few minutes to see so check it out. You can also climb on it too

The Sequoias are awe inspiring. So HUGE, and despite the crowd it was amazingly quiet.
