Very steep.

Description

You can take this trail from Pass Lake Loop or Ginnett Trail, either way works. About halfway down or up the trail (depending on which way you are running), there is a huge cedar that takes 6 people to wrap their arms around the trunk. This cedar is the largest in Deception Pass State Park. It is quite a beaut!

Flora & Fauna

Cedars, pines, ferns, and more.

This giant is the largest ceder in Deception Pass State Park. While it is not much taller then it's fellow giants this cedar takes 6 or so people to embrace the trunk.
