A short trail to a very BIG spruce tree. This quick trail leads you to one of the biggest spruce trees in the state. You can even crawl into the root system for a fun photo.

A good solid walk with some great scenery. We saw a racer snake that caught and was eating a salamander on the trail. So cool!

Great short hike with variety in elevation. Some parts of the trail are narrow and have been damaged by slides and storms but still totally passable. Come back through the campground most of the way if you need a reprieve for kids or elderly.

Awesome five hundred year old, formally 230 ft tree. You can feel the spirits of those who have gone before us here:)

Loved this trail. Beautiful scenery. Runs along a river. Tons of green and diversity of plants. A good part of the trail runs along the road and a campground, so you don't really feel you're away from civilization until you're a ways into the trail.

Cape Perpetua has some great trails and the Giant Spruce is no different. Very pretty, and the tree at the end of the trail is huge.

I love the trail system at Cape Perpetua. The giant spruce trail was a perfect length for a day of exploring. A nice out and back trail through lush forest with an incredible old growth spruce at the end. Make sure to hike up to the cape and keep an eye out for whales. We come every spring and catch a few during their migration.
