Best Climbing Tree

Next Door to the Main Building on St. Ed's

This mammoth arbor on St. Edward's campus is the fattest, most inviting live oak in all of Austin. With a trunk too big for two folks to get their arms around and a space where all the boughs meet that's as big as some living rooms, this is just the place to laze away a summer evening. Huge limbs make it easy to climb up to scary heights where you'll have a great view of the city and of the stained glass on the St. Ed's campus. If you're inclined to recline among the trees, this is the one.
