The Solo Tree is a great photography spot with a great overlook of the farms. Keep in mind, the tree is on private property.

Disclaimer: This tree is on private property. If you choose to proceed, please check in with the property owner and proceed respectfully.

The Solo Tree (often referred to as #thatrosevillesolotree on Instagram) has become a very popular photography spot in the Roseville area.

Drive as far west as you can on Blue Oaks Blvd., and the tree is pretty easily accessible. Once you reach the end of Blue Oaks, you'll find a parking space for the next-door apartments; there is ample space, so I don't think it's a bad idea to park there. Then walk straight north until you cross the Kaseberg Creek and you'll be sure to see it. Although it is private property, keep an eye out for the owner to get the okay if possible and obviously be respectful.

Once at the tree there are endless possibilities for taking pictures, but be sure to tag #thatrosevillesolotree when posting on ig!
