  • I visited in Dec 2017 to see the beautiful green forest area as shown in pictures. Due to fire all the big trees are burnt completely and would take atleast few years before this area can be restored ...  more »

  • Great pathway to go with children. It's about a mile. Running water and bridges. Picnic tables and a restroom. Bumpy road going in so hold on....
  • With everything going on today I sure hope we could go back in the future heaven on Earth Campground
  • We came here after doing two days in Yosemite Valley. Of course the valley is beautiful, but it was such a relief to get away from people and have a trail to ourselves. And the giant sequoias! Yowza! This time of year the trails were wet, and we had to climb over downed trees across the trail, but that only made me love it more. Totally worth a stop. The route there was twisty, and it was a pitted uphill dirt road at the end, but our rental Malibu made it up just fine.
  • Skip the crowds and have a truly unique Big-Tree viewing experience. I've seen many of the Sequoia groves. The Nelder Grove is my favorite
  • Gorgeous short hiking loop among Sequoia trees and other flora and fauna. Easy trail with little elevation but gets narrow and could be slippery in poor weather conditions. Outhouse is the only facility in the parking lot. The drive to get here from the main road is winding and challenging. Suggest truck/SUV or decent car to get here.
