LaPine State Park: South Loop Professional Review and Guide

"The state of Oregon is known for its towering timber, and LaPine State Park is home to one such ancient wooden giant. The 500-year-old Oregon Heritage Tree, appropriately nicknamed the Big Tree, is the largest ponderosa pine in Oregon, with a whopping circumference of 28 feet 11 inches.

It used to be the tallest as well, at 191 feet, until a storm took its crown (literally) down to its current 162-foot height. On the South Loop, you’ll run by for a close-up of the famous pine, along with several great overlooks of the
Deschutes River along the way."
