The Angel Oak is located in the middle of nature preserve and accessible via a dirt road. A trip here is definitely an amazing experience. The Angel Oak tree is estimated to be 400 years old and could live as long as 900 years. There...More

The Angel Oak is an exhibit all by itself. There is no admission, but donations are accepted in the small gift shop. The tree is over 400 yrs old and spans a huge area with branches gracefully touching the ground here and there. No climbing,...More

Yeah its a little bit of a drive and wouldn't have found it without maps, but this tree is awesome. I just stared in wonder of how incredible it looks, and how old it is (older than the U.S.!). Yeah they have signs and support...More

Definitely a quick detour but, worth the trip. Majestic to see and to be in the quiet presence of the earthly energy of such an old beautiful tree.

The tree is very pretty but your pics won't be - they have chains and large signs setup all around the tree which can't be moved. They show up in all the photos which is a bummer.

Angel Oak is a massive southern live oak on John's Island. The City of Charleston has a park surrounding the tree. It's free to visit and there's a small gift shop here, but not much else for amenities. Angel Oak is considered one of the...More

The tree is definitely beautiful. However, no real parking to speak of, basically parking on the side of small road, kinda chaotic, lots of people, no real facilities, porta potties. But again, the tree is worth a visit, it is free!
