This is, to say the least, a very interesting tree. Obviously, it has had erosion under it from storms and tides. To say I question how it is still there and has been hanging on for years is an understatement. This tree is an easy walk down some stairs to the beach to view so pretty much anyone can get there. If you are in the area definitely stop in and spend 15 minutes to check it out.

Was told to go see this when I was in the area. A very cool thing to see and the beach is also very nice. Access can be a bit tough for someone with walking issues but if you can get down there, you should. You may have to wait a bit to get a picture but it is something very interesting up close.

We took our 2 dogs here and parked along the road. We found a trail that went down a steep hill to the beach, however we had to climb over a massive (and dangerous I might add) pile of driftwood. We found out later that we should have parked (paid to park?) at the Kalaloch campground day use area. Other than that, the beach is beautiful. We came upon this cave accidentally- didn't realize it was an attraction here.

Pretty cool to see. Unique, to be sure, but nothing more than what pictures show. If you're out there, it is a fun natural feature to see while enjoying some time at the beach, but I wouldn't say it requires a stop in and of itself....but if you want to pick a location to enjoy the beach for a while, this tree cave makes this location "better" than other options.

If a hole opens in the ground, lesser trees would have given up by now. But, not this tree! This one is not going without a fight.

Note: It is easy to reach. Use the main parking lot for the Kalaloch Campground and Beach, follow the trail indicated by the sign that says “Beach Trail <-“ to get down to the beach, then turn right. You will see your destination almost immediately.

I saw a comment that said the tree is no longer standing but as of April 23, 2017 it is definitely still there. Here is a picture of what it looked like yesterday the 23rd. It's still incredible and a must see if you're in the area!!!!

This was one of the sites I wanted to see on our trip. It was easy to get to, just park in the parking lot by the campgrounds, there was an extremely helpful park ranger working that told us to go down the steps and to the right about a hundred steps we’d see it. It was pretty neat. You have to climb over some logs to get under it, but if you’re there, may as well do it. The beach was clean and nearly empty at 5 in the evening so we walked and picked up sand dollars. It was worth the look and I enjoyed the time spent walking with my family.

We overheard someone talking about this tree, and it's very easy to find. Park at the Kalaloch Campground, and take the path to the beach. When you hit sand, turn right (north) and it's just steps down the beach.

WARNING! Do not attempt to go out there at high tide, or when the tide is coming in. Unless you're in waders, you will get soaked -- and logs in the surf are a real danger.

Just go when the tide is out, because the view is really best when you stand back from the cliff a bit.

Tree Root Cave is a crazy weird natural phenomenon brought on by erosion. Beautiful beach which is actually within a campground, Kalaloch Campground. The easiest and best way there is to park in the campground parking lot and take the beach trail down to the beach, go straight as you come down and off the stairs, it's a short walk to the tree. Little waterfall under the tree as well.

Quite beach with lots to see.
