Hiking Big Tree Trail

This sweet little trail on the Kitsap Peninsula makes a wonderful winter hike when the high country is snowed in.

Less than two miles round trip, the Big Tree Trail ventures through old growth, over a creek, down a few switchbacks and finally to a huge Douglas Fir over 30 feet in circumference.

It's a great spot for little kids or grown hikers looking for a new place to explore.

WTA Pro Tip: Save a copy of our directions before you leave! App-based driving directions aren't always accurate and data connections may be unreliable as you drive to the trailhead.

Getting There

Take Kitsap Way west from Bremerton which turns into Northlake Road, then left onto Seabeck Highway. At a little less than a mile, look for the driveway on the left to the Mountaineers outdoor theater - drive just past the theater to the Mountaineers Kitsap Cabin parking lot and the trailhead is there.
