Overview

The Doerner Fir Trail offers visitors a chance to get out into the quiet wilderness of southeastern Oregon and see some of the area's most magnificent trees, the Doerner Fir. The Doerner Fir is one of the largest coast Douglas fir trees in the world, it stands 329 feet tall and 11.5 feet in diameter. Winding roads take travelers through some of the most valuable forests in the nation to this site 50 miles from Coos Bay in Oregon's Coast Range mountains. Once at the trailhead, the 1/2 mile trail leading to the Fir takes you through one of the coast's finest old growth forests. The trail is steep in certain spots and so sturdy footwear is recommended for those taking this hike.

En route to the trail, the Park Creek and Burnt Mountain recreation sites provide both camping and restrooms, and are good basecamps for people hoping to explore the area.
