Cathedral Tree Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"Sitka spruce are among the tallest trees in the world, and they can live for hundreds of years. Young spruce seedlings rarely take root in anything but the rotting stump, snag, or fallen trunk of another spruce. This easy and accessible trail puts these spruce forest dynamics on display."
