Default The Stoltmann Cedar

This is a story about one of my favourite trees in Lynn Headwaters Regional Park that I just finished writing. The Stoltmann Cedar, as I call it, is a 700 year old cedar that can be found just off the Cedar Trail on the west side of Lynn Creek.

I know that trail very well. While Lynn across the creek will be a gong show, one can usually have total solitude on west side. Specially past "Big Cedar" and onto Kennedy Falls, which is probably my favorite North Shore waterfall:

Whole thing also lends itself nicely to a loop, if Lynn creek is low enough & one is prepared for ford.

Always in awe of these fabulous trees.

Mick have you visited the Eco Reserve just beyond the far end of Chilliwack Lake ? There are some huge trees of great age there as well.


Hiking is what keeps you young of mind and heart. When the going gets tough, the tough get going..............

Mick, you are on Van Island now I think? Have you been to Avatar Grove? It's just off Port Renfrew. There are some real candies for you there:

I am not so big on trees as you are, but loved it there. Check it out if you haven't already
