Hard to believe this tree is over 100 years old. We drive by this whenever we are in Santa Barbara. A must see!

Unless you're super into Fig Trees, this isn't very worth seeing. Yeah, it's a relatively large tree, but it's not in a great area of town and it's really not spectacular in any way. Don't waste your time unless you're a serious tree-buff.

I understand why someone would want to see this tree, but there are too many homeless hanging around. You would think the City would do something more to spruce this up since it is such an attraction for the tourists.

Very large tree, used to be in great view before the freeway extention almost 25 years ago. Now a bit lost, and forgotten? Not really worth much effort.

It might seem like "just a tree"...but, it is estimated to be 140 years old! It is stunning to see it in person! I'm so glad we went to it. We got some beautiful pictures.

The tree is in this weird spot. I get it, nature rules. But you'll second guess yourself when you find it. It's very accessible and very big. Find a quick spot to park and get up close to see how massive this thing is. It's...More
