We recently went to Nelder Grove based on a local residents suggestion. We could have not been more pleased. The view was amazing. There is a one mile trail that is easy for any fitness level. We were one of two cars at this great location. There was a restroom facility on site and lots of peace and quiet! I... More

Wonderfull, uncrowded hiking experience among the giant trees. A short hike that even the old and frail can make.

This is a wonderful peaceful place to be in the shadow of the Giant Sequoias without travelling into Yosemite. The road there is a pleasant wooded drive, but take your time as it's not paved all the way. There are several loops in the trail so you can shorten or lengthen your walk. I'm a local, and in the summer... More

Check out the campground with models of a two-pole chute & tramway used in the log fluming days. Beautiful trees & nature worth the bumpy, windy drive.

Nelder Grove is a grove of Sequoia trees in Madera County north of Oakhurst and before the entrance to Yosemite. To get there from Highway 41 take the Sierra Sky Ranch road (road 632) for several miles. When you turn off that main road you will be on a gravel road for maybe 3 miles. You then want to go...

This is an absolute gem. After hiking in Yosemite this was literally a breath of fresh air. Don't be put off by people who write about bad roads. It was easy--we made the trip in a minivan with absolutely no problems. The directions on Yosemite National Park's website are perfectly clear and if you follow them, you will not get... More

Forever driving up a curvy road, and was a wonderful hike. Shaded and we never saw another person except some firefighters that were in the area working (which was really cool). Relatively easy hike.

After the bustle of the National Park this place was a breathe of fresh air and we saw some good wildlife too. Very good find.

This grove is spectacular because of it's setting. It's secluded and requires some effort to get to. The last km or so is on a dirt road, but is in pretty good shape. Just take it slow. The trail itself starts out slow, but then BANG, amazing trees one after the other. This was one of the highlights of our... More
