The Big Tree Trail near the Lost Lake campground goes through the Big Tree Botanical Area near Strawberry Mountain.

For those who want a lower-key, wheelchair accessible hike, the 0.7-mile Big Tree Trail is just the ticket. Highlighting two 900 year old Western Larch trees, the short loop trail provides educational signage and a couple of benches to take in the surrounding forest at your leisure. 

The trail begins across from the Lost Lake Campground entrance and travels one mile from Lost Lake Campground to the Big Tree Botanical Trailhead and Interpretive Site. The trail continues 0.7 miles around the loop at the Big Tree Trail Interpretive Site.
