Perhaps it suffers in comparison to the Giant Forest and Grants Grove, but I was somewhat disappointed by the walk (1 mile loop) to the stump of the Mark Twain Sequoia, which was cut down in the 1890's, so that a cross section could be sent to the American Museum of Natural History and a British Museum, where a disbelieving public called it a "California Hoax" due to its unbelievable immensity. Other evidence of the logging of these giant trees lies along the trail, although several large trees survive in this grove. if you're in a hurry, this attraction can be dispensed with. It does have a bathroom, however, which you may need after the hour long drive from Fresno up Highway 180. ;o)
