The trip to Patriarch Grove from Big Tree involves 30 miles of steep, windy roads, culminating in the last 12 that are unpaved, pot-holed, and narrow. Ideally you want to get there for the solitude of early morining or late evening, though that means driving in the dark. Once there, take some time to let the area sink in. Some of these trees have thousands of years old, which you can almost feel after a while. Dress in layers as the weather changes quickly, especially near dusk, and bring food and water. Check your spare tire before you start out - it's going to take AAA a long time to find you.
