Troutdale, Oregon: Jerry Garcia Tree Sculpture

This is not a tree carved into a likeness of Jerry Garcia -- deceased frontman of the Grateful Dead -- it's a bronze sculpture of a tree that looks like Jerry Garcia. A gnarled, twisted, nightmarish tree. Jerry smoked a lot of plants in his lifetime; maybe the burl tables have turned?

McMenamins Edgefield Resort

Address:
2126 SW Halsey St., Troutdale, OR
Directions:
McMenamins Edgefield Resort. I-84 exit 16. Drive south on NE 238th Drive. At the first stoplight, turn left onto NE Halsey St. Drive a half-mile. You'll see a vineyard on your right. There's a road just past it (usually exit only), then a green fence, then a second road. Turn right onto that road. You can park in the field on the left; the statue is in the tree grove on the right, not far from the exit road. If you're lucky, the exit road will be open and you can just drive down it to the paved parking lot, which is right next to the Garcia tree.

Jerry Garcia the Tree.

Statue of Jerry Garcia as a Tree

A little bit more of walk than suggested. but worth it. as the grounds of the winery are quite nice. Interesting sculpture. If you did not know this was supposed to be Jerry Garcia you might not guess it.

"Bronze Garcia" was created by artist Joe Cotter. Deadheads gather at the site every August to celebrate Jerry's birthday.
