Park Facilities & Accessibility Features

Access Route

The Park has a gravel parking lot for visitors with no defined parking spaces with no designated accessible parking. The surface of the access route to the tree itself is mostly loose gravel and dirt. The route is averagely 1500 mm wide and 1220 mm at the most narrow spot. Running slope is a moderate  2 to 3 degrees and the cross slope is a gentle 1 to 3 degrees.  The length of the route is approximately 200 metres. The route has several spots with groups of rocks protruding higher than 13 mm (approx 20-25 mm). This route would not be recommended for some wheelchairs and persons with certain mobility issues. Persons with good upper body strength may be able to manage the rocky sections of the route. There is also a secondary short route to a second large Sitka spruce tree approximately halfway to the view of the Giant Spruce. Download Full Accessibility Audit
