So worth it. You can actually see it from highway 101 on east side. Museum only open Sat. and Sun. Enjoy

Nice to look at when you pass by but the museum part was closed, bummer. It is a nice tree though. Yup

It definitely is a BIG tree. That's it. Nothing special in the immediate vicinity. Not worth visiting Brookings just to see this tree.

The visitors center/museum isn't open in winter, but we recommend stopping to admire this magnificent tree.

It is a pretty tree. It is nice that it grew so big. Normally big trees require going out of your way so this has that advantage. Hard to say more since it isn't that large compared to nearby redwoods. Nice diversion for a couple of minutes.

After visiting Yosemite and driving up 101 seeing park after park of giant redwood trees I was not excited about seeing another Big Tree, but the Cypress is a beautiful tree and it is the largest in Oregon, so why not? It is easy to get to from 101 and worth a quick stop, but not more. It seems a... More
