Quinault Big Cedar: An Olympic Peninsula Giant Tree

GOPR0757 (Medium)

 

With the partial falling and closure of the trail around the Kalaloch Big Cedar, tree enthusiast from around felt a huge loss. While the falling of the Kalaloch Cedar is sad, there are still plenty of other giant trees to look at, explore around and hug. Located just 40 miles from the site of the Kalaloch Cedar, the Quinault Cedar is still standing and waiting for visitors.

Located just two-tenths of a mile from the road, the trail to the Quinault Cedar is decent. Boardwalks and stairs are sporadic, but are extremely well-maintained. The trail does get quite muddy, but you are in a rainforest, so it is to be expected. With a few viewpoints nearby, as well as other huge trees and giant ferns, this trail is kid-friendly. Plus, with the close proximity to Highway 101, this is a great side trip for the entire family.

 

The Quinault Cedar is hollowed out, meaning that this towering monster may not be around for much longer.  That is why we are making sure you are all aware of it and get a chance to visit this massive legend before it meets the same fate as the Kalaloch Cedar.

 

Standing nearly 174 feet above the fern covered, muddy forest below, the Quinault Big Cedar is a must see tree near the Olympic National Park. At 61 feet around, this tree is huge, nearly impossible to capture in a single photograph. Come visit the cedar and pose for a picture, climb inside of it and experience the sights, smells and sheer enormity of the forests of the Olympic Peninsula and Olympic National Park.
