Hiking Big Tree Loop

The Big Tree Loop Trail — located in the closed Soda Springs Campground — has not had any maintenance for five years or more. Bridges are missing from creeks and devil's club blocks some sections of the trail.

Yet the grove of four- foot-wide conifers stands tall, wildflowers bloom brightly in summer, and autumn leaves glow brilliantly in October.

It is currently an abandoned, partly overgrown trail in a very quiet day-use-only campground. The Forest Service hopes to restore the loop in 2020.
