The massive Methuselah Tree in Redwood City is the oldest and largest living tree in California's Santa Cruz Mountains. It's hard to believe the impact this 1,800-year-old tree will have on you until you're standing in front of it, but a well-composed photo is a great way to convey its unique magnificence.
After visiting the giant redwood, you can take a quick four-minute drive to Canyon Ranch Woodside (https://explorest.app.link/crw), an immersive wellness resort, to rest up from an adventurous day.

This image was taken at the base of the Methuselah Tree in Redwood City. The easiest way to get to this location is by taking a car.
First, park near the Sierra Morena Trail Access point (37.405984, -122.304235) on Skyline Blvd. Then, cross the street and make your way toward the tree. Reference the GPS coordinates and you'll see the exact point where I stood to get this perspective of the Methuselah.
