Amazing tree and easy access

Came across by accident; an amazing old Fig tree. Easy access to the train and walking distance to the beach.

the greatest tree you can see around. Makes you feel so grateful for mother nature. I wish people would not scratch writing on it.

Whilst it's not offering service to report about, this is just something you should plan to see. Once you're home, it's no good wishing you had done.

This is a cool place to see if you ride the train up to Santa Barbara. It looks like it was a nice shady place to hang out but it's surrounded by fences now to keep out the homeless and probably vandals. That's the kind of world we're in I guess.

I am so glad we found this to see on Trip advisor before we left town. I have never seen anything so big. It is a beautiful tree. Do not miss this when in Santa Barbara.

This tree is beautiful and huge! Well worth seeing. The Amtrak train station is there as is the Reagan Center and the Enterprise Fish Restaurant

OK, since everybody kept talking about the big tree we went by to see it. It's in the train station and it sure is big. Surprising to learn it was planted by a little girl from a seed in the 19th century. Nice photo op.

You only need a few minutes to see this - but it is worth it! The trolley tour takes you right by it.
