A winter visit to this fog-shrouded headland reveals in all its glory a classic coastal forest of old-growth Sitka spruce. For an intimate look at a fog-belt rain forest, hike the well-maintained Giant Spruce Trail. This trail, 2-miles round-trip, leads to a 500-yearold Sitka spruce. Pick up a self-guided interpretive brochure at the interpretive center. It describes the workings of an old-growth forest and is keyed to marked stations along the trail. Believe it or not, a rainy, foggy, winter day is the best time to see these forests because you can immerse yourself in the climate that created them.
