We followed the directions I found on TA and really had no problem finding the place but then I used to going into National Forests and I can see how some people might not like the trip in. The loop trail was a wonderful walk. I recommend boots and bring water. We loved the whole experience.

If you like quiet and away from the crowds in Yosemite, Nelder Grove is the place to go. We only saw five people today in three hours, just wonderful. Keep it our secret, though!

Nelder Grove is an excellent location to see Sequoia's!!! Most tourist do not go here because you take a dirt road to the location. The road is in good shape and most vehicles we get to the grove with no problem, The hiking trail is a total of 1 mile and easy to walk. You get up close and personal... More

I am sure that Nelder Grove is beautiful, but we had difficulty finding it. We wandered around on dirt roads that are horribly maintained and found not much. We saw the campground and ended up on what was probably an ATV trail. One of us had to get out and help the two drivers negotiate the turn around to get... More

Having been to the Mariposa Grove more times than I can count, we were excited to find Nelder Grove this year. It is fantastic. No people. Just a beautiful little hike among the giants. It is an easy trail. My mother who is in her 80s could do the hike with no problem. (Grant it she is in very good... More

We had the grove to ourselves! We enjoyed a few hours of complete tranquility, met one dog walker briefly, saw plenty of wildlife and absolutely loved this place. It's not easy to get to once you leave the made up roads it's best to have a 4x4.

My family and I enjoyed this easy hike among the Sequoias. It does take some time to get there. Follow Rd 632 off of CA 41 and follow the signs to Nelder Grove. There will be a sign that says Nelder Grove left (arrow). Take that road and it it quickly turns into a dirt road. Follow the dirt road.... More

what a fun place to see...We say this is very worth the time to visit and off the beaten path. Our great natural resources in California are a must see when traveling. Look for the extra special spots.

This amazing "attraction" is FREE! Although it is a bit out of the way, our GPS found it. It is a 1540 acre tract in the Sierra National Forest, 4 miles south (as the crow flies) from the Mariposa Grove. It is marked as a 1 mile hike. There were some students there but it was about 3:30 so they... More

There's a dirt road which takes you to the grove. You can choose hikes of varying distance. Be sure to do your homework before going as the directions to get here may not be obvious and it might be easy to get lost on forest service roads. Once there, the trails are all of reasonable grade. Trees are nice, though... More
