If you’ve never seen a sequoia before, it’ll take you by surprise...even when you’re expecting it. I’m from northwestern Minnesota. Our party (two youthful Czechs and myself) never intended to visit the park; in fact, it wasn’t even on our radar. But after giving in...More

The Giant forest is amazing! You actually drive through the forest to go to the Giant Forest Museum. There are several trails you can take in this area. We chose the trail through the Giant Forest to the Sherman Tree. Was not disappointed.
