If you want to see something impressive this 400 years old Oak tree is just the thing. Free entrance to the small park. Limbs are so huge they are supported with cables so as not to bend. Limbs on the ground are 12 feet around.

I love Angel Oak, so much so that I try to visit once a year or so while in town for visit. It's 400-years with a 900-year lifespan, so roughly middle-age, HA! All visitors, please take a moment and read the warning sign when you...More

The angel oak is the biggest oak tree that I have ever seen--magnificent in its proportions--with branches outstretched like cradling arms to shelter those beneath it who gaze in up awestruck wonder at what God has created. However, there are so many signs scattered around...More

This tree is just amazing and to think it has survived for hundreds of years. Definitely worth a 15 minute stop. Great photo op.

My wife and I liked it. But the teens were not as impressed. Not much to do beside appreciate (or fail to appreciate) the tree.

Very large canopy for this oak. Seems like there was some issue on one side and lost a major branch but the other side will give you the idea. Nature is pretty awesome. Right off where you have parking so it is a quick stop...More

It's a lovely tree but I'm not sure it would be worth visiting if you had to pay to see it. It is just a tree and it's in the middle of nowhere not close to anything else you'd want to see.

A tour would be the most reliable, but Uber or Lyft may be an option. Personally, I’d go with tour.

If you get there early you can park very close to the fence and take your photo angled up at the bike and get the tree in the background.

And be warned: the tree has 'hours' that it's open. So if you're planning to drive 2.5 hours, make sure you arrive when the gates are open, so you can walk around the tree. Otherwise you'll be stuck admiring it from afar... More
