One of many places to enjoy in the park.

Lots of wild plants and animals. Easy to get around but bring plenty of water because it gets very hot in the summer. The earlier you can get there, the better it is.

We read great reviews about this little-known trail and were eager to give it a try. The roads to the trail are really not marked at all and our GPS did not even list this trail. The only map we could find of the area was a hand-drawn map provided by people who support the area. This map was not... More

Many beautiful and majestic giant sequoias that are not well known to the general public. A most enjoyable walking trail, cleared each year by volunteer Camp Fire Groups

We went there today with our 4 young children...They loved it apart from the many mosquitos. It is beautiful.. A very dense and isolated forest area with lots of different kind of plants and trees. I've never seen so many in one place. There is a small stream and it is very moist and cool. (Refreshing from the dry heat... More
