  • Pretty laid back walk for you to enjoy with the family. Seeing the large trees up close is pretty amazing

  • We took a long hike from the small parking area along a very dusty trail. It's not as scenic as most of Yosemite but it is also very quiet, so it depends on what you're looking for.

  • Super nice hike, takes about 45 min for each direction. It was a good option now that the meriposa entrance is closed due to the fire. It is a bit challenging in a hot day but doable with kids.
  • A nice way to stretch our legs after hours of driving to the park. About 3 miles total. You go through a burn area then get to the grove. Has toilet and picnic area... We lunched at the trailhead. Enjoy!
