Here is an opportunity to see one of the largest Arizona cypress trees in North America. It is 97 feet high with a circumference of 18 inches, a crown spread of 41 feet, and is listed on the National Register of Big Trees.

The trail is quite short and steep and is located near Sardine Saddle picnic area. North of the big tree is an old wood cutter's camp where you can still see remnants of saws; please look and don't touch. A portion of this trail was constructed with help from the Trailblazers, a local volunteer group. The Forest Service welcomes volunteers in performing various tasks - perhaps you would like to volunteer to help maintain trails or campgrounds?
