Description

Work your way from Gatton Creek Trail, across Gatton Creek and Wright Canyon Road as Resort Trail slowly winds its way northeast. Eventually the trail meets a junction with South Shore Road - be careful crossing here!

Once across the road, Resort Trail works its way easily towards the World's third largest Sitka Spruce by volume. You won't want to miss this attraction!
