Located in Yosemite National Park on Hwy 120 (the Tioga Road) just east of Crane Flat, the Tuolumne Grove has about two dozen mature giant sequoias. Sequoias are only visible after a one-mile hike with 500 feet of elevation loss. (The one-mile hike back to the parking lot gains 500 feet and is strenuous.) Water is not available; bring drinking water for everyone in your group who will be hiking this trail. The Tuolumne Grove is open year-round, and you may need snowshoes in the winter.
Directions: From Groveland, CA, travel east on Hwy 120 into Yosemite National Park. At Crane Flat (approx. 45 minutes from Groveland), turn onto Hwy 120 East (Tioga Rd.) and go about 1 mile. Trailhead parking is on the left.
