Myrtle Tree Trail winds up the hill with many switchbacks to accommodate the moderate grade. You will see some large Oregon myrtle as soon as you begin the trail. When you near the top there is a small stream with a picnic table next to it. Continue on to the world’s largest myrtle tree; you will know it when you see it! Three large trunks extend above a hollow 13 foot diameter base. There are picnic tables and benches at the trailhead.
