  • Easily accessible giant sequoia trees near the southern entrance of Yosemite valley. Plenty of beautiful trees and easy hiking trails. There are two main parking areas one near the highway and the other one just next to the giant trees.
  • Picked a perfect day to go ... ended up hiking the Mariposa Grove trail. It was an amazing adventure and the view at the top was worth the long hike.
