  • Recently reopened after restoring the grove from decades of mismanagement by windshield tourism. You now park in an outlying lot and a free shuttle takes you to the grove.  more »

  • It was good but having been through the Giant Redwoods earlier in our trip I thought this overall walk was just 'ok'. Certainly not a dense grove of specimens. Saying that, I thought the second half of the Grizzly loop was better being comparatively quiet with several nice trees.
  • Wow. The trees are stunningly large. What a beautiful place! Definitely something that needs to be experienced in person.
