Standing on a granite hillside off California's scenic 17-mile drive in Pebble Beach, the Lone Cypress is a western icon, and has been called one of the most photographed trees in North America. The tree is located between Cypress Point Golf Course and the Pebble Beach Golf Links, two of world's best-known golf courses. Possibly as old as 250 years, the cypress has been scarred by fire and has been held in place with cables for 65 years.Make Lone Cypress a centerpiece of your Pebble Beach vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Pebble Beach driving holiday website .

Breathtaking view.... gorgeous place. Only one thing that you need is a car to get there. I had no problem parking because there were lots of free spots. There is only one time charge when you are entering 17 miles road, around $10.
Took the 17 Mile drive in Carmel for the first time where this tree is located. A fabulous day. Weather was very cooperative when it can be iffy at times. Breathtaking views be and it's great to be able to pull off the road to get awesome pictures. There is a cash only $10.25 charge per car. Well worth it! Just gorgeous!!
