You'll descend the old Oak Flats route (paved) about 1 mile to arrive at the famous tunnel tree and other wonderful Giant Sequoia specimens. Between arrivals of Yosemite shuttle busses, it's pretty quiet, then a group of 30 or so will arrive. If you're arriving...More

My wife and I walked the short 1.2 mile track and the trees at the bottom of the track were no different to the one's at the start of the walk, so save yourself the trouble.

We arrived to Tuolumne Grove of Giant Sequoias to see we needed to walk another 1/2 mile to see the tunnel tree. We arrived to the tree to be disappointed. The tree was only remnants of the great sequoia. The cut-out tunnel was smaller than...More

Huge trees, but getting to them is a hike. Downhill about .7 mile but its .7 back up hill. I was fine but I feel it’s accessible to a lot of people which parks should be.

We did this walk with our 13 month old in a three wheeled stroller. Despite the incline on the way up we didn’t find it much of a challenge. The path was smooth and quite - we went early in the morning so parking wasn’t...More

This grove we found out has about 25 very large trees, is easy to get to from the 120 Yosemite Entrance and does not require a 2.5 hour drive to Mariposa Grove. We did the hike in about 1.5 hours seeing all the trees. It...More

This was an amazing hike, but not too long/far. But as other reviews had mentioned, it’s downhill going to the grove but then all uphill coming back. Well worth the effort. The morning we went, it snowed overnight, so the hike was enchanted and the...More

The walk to the grove is all downhill, but be prepared for about 450 ft of elevation on the way back! The trees are amazing to behold.

Make sure you are physically ready for this highly recommended sight before going otherwise it’ll be the only excursion you do that day. We went first thing in the morning about an hour after sunrise. No one else was there (it was on a weekday...More

It is a tarmac road, so a stroller should be ok, but it is very hilly
