Beautiful forest scenery to explore and discover the giant redwoods. The road here is very rough, do not attempt to drive here in a small city car.
Challenging drive winding up a mountain to reach the area. The signs are not clear as to where the groves are. Trails are not well marked either. Finally saw Sequoias on a hike within a forest area. Certainly not what I would consider a grove of Sequoias.
Since Mariposa Grove is closed for renovation until Spring 2017, this is a good alternative for those who don't want to hike too much. It's accessible via a road (the last bit is dirt) and the 1-mile loop is not strenuous. My 85-year-old mom did fine. The path is marked with informative signs about the trees.

We stopped by this grove on the way back to the Fresno airport. It is about a half hour outside of Oakhurst. Hike is easy with just a few mildly steep parts. I did it with boots on but good athletic shoes would suffice. We practically had the area to ourselves so it was wonderfully quiet and peaceful. There were... 更多

Unfortunately for us, the Mariposa Grove in Yosemite is closed for renovations until spring 2017. I stated asking around and we were told about the Nelder Grove which is within 15 miles... 更多

Since (at present) not too many people head here you can often be the only people on the trails. Since it is not in the main Yosemite park it is not as well... 更多
Not a far drive from Oakhurst. Fairly easy to find, but follow sign when your GPS gets you within a few miles, as your GPS likely will not take you straight there. Easy trail to walk with some really nice trees.
Disappointed to learn Mariposa Grove was going to be closed during our visit, but happy to find & hike the Nelder Grove area. We were staying in Oakhurst so it was close by. After a long trek by car up the mountain we arrived and hiked "The Shadow of the Giants" trail. Wasn't too far in before we came across... 更多
