Met a local cyclist who told us that during a drought a local farmer brought a thousand gallons of water a day to keep the tree alive. Sure glad they did. Worth the stop.

It was actually really cool and the area is absolutely beautiful. It's an off road picturesque area with no place to sit but there is little traffic so you can walk on the road and take some pretty pictures

Pretty cool, and a pretty drive there. Some people spray painted the base, which sucks, but still happy we stopped there!

The road is like a crazy turny roller coaster. The tree is beautiful. Very quiet and relaxing place to just sit and enjoy the scenery.

The tree is cool! Out next to the road in one of the few open areas you'll see in this neck of the woods. It's not worth the trip by itself, but hoo boy, the road in is fun!! Like a little roller coaster! I'd recommend it just for that!

Cool to see! The kids loved it and it's near some very scenic conservation areas.
