Story Recognized as a National Big Tree in November of 2007, this tree's size is truly outstanding. It is also located in an outstanding environment. Upon approaching this giant specimen tree, one will first discover an unusual grove of aspen that appear extremely large and swollen at the base similar to a bald cypress. Continuing on, the explorer will find an assortment of other unusually large curleaf mountain mahogany trees with the obvious champion perched on the edge of a drop off. A perfect view of Beehive Peak can be seen from the branches of this heritage tree.
