“Best kept secret”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013 via mobile

The hike wound through all the beautiful giant trees. Quiet, peaceful area. A way to see the trees without tons of tourists. Want to go back to explore it much more.

“Nice Day Hike”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

Very few people seem to know about this grove of Giant Sequoias just south of Yosemite Park off Highway 41. Easy drive to and easy walk through well marked trails to see some of the largest and oldest trees in the world. Pack a picnic and enjoy an afternoon without the crowds of Yosemite.

“Wow. No one around.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

We went on a busy Saturday in May and there was only one other family in this large, extensive and undeveloped grove. It's a great way to experience a Sequoia grove in its natural state. A bit tricky to find, but most of the route is paved; only the last maybe a mile is dirt, and it's in good shape. Take a blanket, a picnic and a special friend ... and enjoy the solitude of the ages in the midst of these spectacular trees.

“Adventure Hike In The Grove”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013

I thought this place had lots of living giant Sequoias but I was wrong. We got lost and took a wrong turn and went into the craziest narrow paths in search for the Nelder Grove. When we finally arrived there, we discovered that most of the trees were cut down. They have a neat little set up about the history of the area. We had fun hiking and scaling the huge stumps there. Good thing we have a 4 x 4 truck for such a trek into the woods.

“Off the beaten path”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

This side trip is worth the effort, but difficult to get to during the snowy season. There is a nice path about 1 mile long through the forest.
