Red Creek Fir

Location:
The largest Douglas fir tree in the world grows only a 45 minute drive from Port Renfrew. The Red Creek Fir measures 43.7 feet in circumference (14 feet in diameter), stretches 242 feet tall, with a crown spread of 75 feet. The tree is truly mammoth in size and is a must-see for big tree lovers. Along the trail there are also three giant cedars that deserve a good look as well.

The Red Creek fir is recognized as the largest living tree of its species on earth.

After parking in the small pullout, find the route marker on the right hand side of the road. The path is fairly clear and easy to follow; it takes approximately 10 minutes to reach the tree. Be sure to check out the giant red cedars on the path’s left-hand side about half way up!

Bear and Cougars:
Remember this is bear and cougar country so please take the usual wildlife precautions.

 

The Ancient Forest Alliance released this video of Port Renfrew’s amazing Red Creek Fir. It is truly a colossus, the biggest of the big.
