Gorgeous Tree! Something magical about this tree. To grow so large & beautiful over the years somehow whispers to us to just keep growing where you're planted. Sometimes you need a little support from others (a pole to hold up a limb, etc). Not sure I could've made it down the little dirt road on a rainy day but it's... More

This tree is a TRUE symbol of the steadfast endurance of the South. It is impressive in photos, but even more so in person.

This is a must do if you are in the area. Will only take 20 min but you will be rewarded by the experiance. A tree that was 1000 years old at the time columbus landed in 1492. Nuff said..

It's a big tree. A really big tree, but sometimes, that is all you need. It was more busy that I remembered it as a kid, but still, amazing to see a living, breathing thing that huge.

If you are in to beautiful nature, this is your place! I was completely amazed by how magnificent this tree is. Getting there early is key because there are not as many people but it is spectacular no matter what. Definitely a visit worth making!

Yes, that's about it, a really big tree. But it is impressive to see something living that's that big and that old. It's a peaceful place. I'm glad i visited. Plus it's FREE. Stop by the tea plantation while in the neighborhood.

What an amazing tree. It doesn't take long to visit the location. Small parking lot, quiet atmosphere, very rustic, with a tiny gift shop and a couple portajohns. Not fancy, but then you are in a wilderness area with just the tranquility of natural surroundings.
