This gnarled, twisted, fallen birch is almost like a playground. It is still alive, despite having fallen many years ago and having thousands of kids - and adults! - climbing climbed on its arched roots, level trunk and stunted branches since! Recently, this tree has been immortalized in the Sony Pictures movie All the Real Girls. A brief scene was shot right here, with some more footage being shot at the overlook at the top. The entire movie was filmed in Asheville and Marshall, NC.
