Golden Spruce Trail

The Golden Spruce Trail was once home to the Golden Spruce, an internationally famous tree not only for its beauty, unique existence and cultural importance to Haida culture but also by its untimely end.

The Golden Spruce trail lies within Yaaguun Gandlaay protected area outside of our Municipal boundaries, though Port Clements has always been strongly associated with the Golden Spruce trail due to its proximity with it located roughly 5km outside of the Village on the backroads leading to Juskatla and Queen Charlotte. Local residents once enjoyed picnicking and viewing the Golden Spruce.

The Trail is known for how easy it is to walk it as well as its pleasing view of the forest and Yakoun River. In recent years the path has been improved with crush and widened to make the trail more accessible as well as having signage added to provide information of the connection of the Golden Spruce to Haida Culture and its general history.
