The visitors center/museum isn't open in winter, but we recommend stopping to admire this magnificent tree.
It is a pretty tree. It is nice that it grew so big. Normally big trees require going out of your way so this has that advantage. Hard to say more since it isn't that large compared to nearby redwoods. Nice diversion for a couple of minutes.
