Most people come to this part of the park during the summer. But if you are ok with Snowshoes or Nordic ski's, you can get the whole area to yourself with a fairly easy to moderate trek. The parking lot is close to the entrance station and has a bathroom-not heated when we were there. There was a fresh coating... 更多
We hiked down to see the big stump and back again. The trail is not marked very well and a few times we wondered if we were going the right way as no markers to tell you the way or how far but eventually we found the big stump. It is gigantic and there are stairs so you can climb... 更多
We were encouraged by a ranger to do this hike...we were the only ones on the trail...and the size of the stumps was unbelievable. Gorgeous meadows and just alot of history. We truly enjoyed this little side trip.
It's roughly two miles from the pavement to the stumps and it can be a BUMPY ride...if you have a low clearance car you might not make it...you don't need 4x4 though. It's a cool field and you can explore on your own because most people won't come out this far. There is no real parking lot so come prepared... 更多
I had two exchange students from France with me and we hiked this trail. It had everything, a meadow, Big Trees, history... This trail is right near the entrance so you don't have to fight traffic and is great if your time is limited. I want to hike it again!
A beautiful loop through a meadow and former lumber mill site the size of the stumps that dot the trail are amazing, as are the giants still standing. You can see multiple examples of where loggers began to cut down a tree at the base and either had to move up higher on the tree where it was not as... 更多
While the living towering Sequoias in the National Park are the main draw, this meadow full of giant tree stumps left over from the logging days in the late 1880s are equally dramatic. Don't miss it!
All over the park, you will walk among standing trees. Here you have a chance to see the very large stumps left behind by logging. It provides a very different perspective (and great photos opportunities). Easy walk which takes about an hour or so.
when you are in the big stump basin , your thoughts have to be why and what were these morons thinking ? the huge stumps cut down will never go away . the past comes very real as these trees were cut down for the wrong reasons ......they couldn't use the cuttings for anything sequoias are not for lumber or... 更多
That's what our teens called it! It was astounding to see the size of the trees that were taken down so long ago...imagine how big they would be now! There were a lot of bees on the trail... They did not bother us but wow the buzz was loud!!
