Elk Creek Trail, located near Elk Creek, offers a mile of hiking and several picnic sites. The trail leaves Forest Service Road #33, and splits-the left fork follows Elk Creek for a short distance to a scenic viewpoint of the Elk Creek Falls. The right fork switches back through a stand of old-growth timber and continues on through a stand of younger trees to the Big Tree picnic area. Big Tree Park contains a number of giant specimens of different conifer species, including the worlds largest Port-Orford cedar tree.
