This trail winds thru Douglas fir and Port Orford cedar to 'The Big Tree' which is about a thousand years old. The trail then connects with the Mt. Elijah Trail for a trek of 1 1/2 miles to the summit. If you don't want to climb to the summit, just continue another two miles on the Loop which will cross a meadow of wildflowers and continue back to the lodge.
