I wanted to do a quick stop at this tree to see if the claims are right. I cannot believe this size of this monster tree. Beautiful and full this time of year with fruits just starting to mature, this tree is real a sight to behold. I'm glad they have it rope off and I truly hope people respect... More

After reading about this tree, the history, the age of it, well of course I had to see it. We were on a cruise, so the walk over to it was a bit long for me, but I made it. It really is big, the roots spread out with nice shaping and figures. Hard to get a decent photo with... More

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

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.

It's very large very unusual is to get to, and the homeless are not there any more, because of the wonderful weather SB has a problem with the homeless but it was not so visible this visit
