Also known as the Tree Root Cave, this giant spruce has survived despite erosion tearing away at its foundation. When you first see the tree, you’ll notice that despite its visible roots, its foliage remains as vibrant as ever. Beneath the roots is a small cave that plays host to a stream that carries out to the Pacific Ocean. 

Know Before You Go

Park at the Kalaloch Campground and take the stairs down to the beach. Head to the right and over the logs. You'll find the tree about 100 feet down the beach.
