While not a particularly “exciting” attraction, it’s worth a visit. The tree is incredibly large and it’s branches so broad there are stakes to hold them up. This is an area of interest for young and old alike. It is free but there is a...More

This is a beautiful land mark and a wonderful thing to do with adults and or small children (not as good for teens)

A quick drive from Charleston. This beautiful tree is preserved with love. It is a must see when you are visiting the area.

This tree is so big! You may not want to visit each year, but it is super cool to check out and take pictures. There’s a small gift shop as well. You won’t be disappointed with the tree for sure.

Great activity that is quick and worth checking out! Might have to wait a couple minutes to get your perfect picture, but the experience of seeing this amazingly old oak in person is wonderful!

Wow!! This very old oak is well worth stopping off at, if you’re in the area. Turning off down a dirt track, with free parking at the side of the road, you arrive at the site of this majestic tree. The area was pretty busy...More

This is a very old tree. Quite amazing. Good place for pictures. We actually wandered around there for quite a while. A four rating because it is hard to get to. Down a very narrow road. As cars are coming out we had to pull...More

35-50 yrs ago awesome, now they have created so many support boards holding up the huge limbs it would not be near as good. There should be some other good size trees if you drive around the area.
