If you love the trees, this is a must-see. These majestic giants are something that everyone should experience. Take your time. take your camera, and soak it all in.

This place is worth the 2 hour walk from the place you park your car. As Mariposa Grove is still closed till fall 2017, there are only two groves where you can still see a couple dozen of these giant sequoias: Tuolumne Grove or Merced...More

Limited parking on 120 entry to Valley, only would recommend if your trip can't include Sequoia National Park down 41 or Big Trees State Park up Hwy 4
