This trail is maintained on an annual basis. The trail leaves Forest Road 33 and follows Elk Creek for a short distance to a scenic viewpoint of the Elk Creek Falls and offers a picnic site. About half way down Elk Creek Falls Trail #1151, the Big Tree Trail #1150 intersects to the right and switches back through a stand of old-growth timber and continues on through a stand of younger trees to the Big Tree Observation Site, located just off of Forest Road 3358-090. Big Tree Observation Site contains a number of giant specimens of different conifer species, including the world’s largest Port-Orford cedar tree. Both these areas provide excellent photographic opportunities.
