The Forest Service website says, "Just 30 minutes north of the sweet little town of Elk River, Idaho, the Giant Cedar Grove Trailhead marks the start of the paved and accessible Giant Red Cedar National Recreation Trail (Trail 748). Hikers can see the "Champion Tree of Idaho," more than 18' in diameter along with many groves of old growth cedar trees."
According to Only in Your State, "Elk River (not to be confused with Elk City) is a tiny town that hovers around 100 residents and is tucked away in Idaho’s Panhandle. Here, amidst the towering pines and lush foliage that distinguishes Northern Idaho from its Southern base, you’ll find a tree that is recognized as the largest tree in North America outside the Cascades. But its size isn’t what truly makes this giant Cedar special – it’s the fact that it’s over 3,000 years old. "
