Visitor Tips and News About Shoe Tree
After an hour of driving through this beautiful cemetery, asking every person we could find about the tree, we finally asked the right person. He told us to follow him and he took us to the tree. It's next to a large dump. The tree has hundreds of shoes hanging from it, and they all look nasty. The little roads are a nightmare to negotiate; finding the tree without help is nearly impossible. We didn't think it was worth the time it took to find it.[Bob E., 06/21/2016]
Don't bother. I expected to see a tree with shoes hanging from the branches, like in the movie Sex Drive, but I was wrong. It's also VERY hard to find.[Sara & Trav, 04/07/2010]
At Lake View Cemetery, known nationally for its horticultural and historical interest, there is a great shoe tree back near the "dump area." Mostly teen and younger shoes are on the tree. I asked about it in the office and only one person had a vague idea what I was talking about. However, it is a popular place to run, walk, exercise dogs, tc. and many people familiar with the cemetery know of it.[Patricia, 12/14/2003]
