Easy trail to walk down and back up to see a small grove of sequoias. Well worth it if up in that part of the Park.

Definitely worth stopping off. There was a detour to get here due to rockfall but worth the extra time.

We were disappointed that the Mariposa grove was closed. A woman at the resort told us that we could see some sequoias here. The road is a little scary at the end, and I was glad our son was driving. We were able to see...More
