The temperate rain forest is dominated by Sitka spruce. Except where it penetrates valley such as the Hoh, the Sitka spruce grows along a narrow coastal strip from northern California to Alaska.

High rainfall, fog, and ocean-moderated temperatures create optimum growing conditions for these monarchs. This is one of the largest Sitka spruce trees in the United States.

Height ... over 270 feet · Diameter at breast height ... over 12½ feet · Age ... 500 to 550 years.

At dawn and dusk be alert for elk crossing road.
