Said to be the oldest tree east of the Mississippi River. Very impressive side of this sprawling live oak, far wider than it is tall. Great place to stop and take in nature at some of its finest. Not real easy to find, but worth looking. The sire is free, and has a little gift shop there which I assume... More

I love trees and how mystical they can be. Wonderful way to appreciate nature. Makes me want to live in the woods by myself surrounded by huge old trees with the peace and quiet.

The best thing about this site is it is free! If this is your first time on Johns Island it is a simple and quick diversion. Parking is ample and access is easy just a mile or so off of the main road. There is a gift shop where you can spend money but you can walk around this massive... More

What an amazing thing to see. It's gorgeous and I'm so happy I got to see it in person. Bucket List: Angel Oak ✔️ Small, quiet dirt road leads you to this magnificent tree. We went during the week and it wasn't too crowded so we could take pics without people in them. Soft, sandy ground surrounds it so don't... More

This tree was so majestic that everyone upon seeing it for the first time just stops and stares. I have never seen a living specimen to compare to this.

Live oaks are an integral part of the south. This tree is a shining example of the magistracy of the living history trees.

Tucked back on a dirt road, you come to a tiny park housing a giant tree, and it is somehow magnificent. It is hard not to be awed by the stunning size and beauty of this simple thing....a tree. I loved that there were no barriers. You could get right beside this spectacular bit of nature. It was equally nice... More

Great place to stop by when you are on John's Island. It can be a little difficult to find, but definitely a photo op. Check the hours, it closes early
