Go there and see it for yourself; you need to walk the Giant Forest Trail and the way how you see nature and especially trees will change forever. 2000 - 3500 year old living species in a size that is unbearable to your mind. One of the best places I have been in my live.

The right nature place with giants trees (Sequoias), inside the park with many safe trails where the 4 main trees biggest in the world! Sequoias with 2000 years old live in forest! Magnificent place, unforgettable, unmissable!

Take your time to enjoy this magical drive. We saw many deers, big and small. I prefer driving early in the morning while sun is out, and leave before it gets dark.

This is one of the places where "words are not adequate" is accurate. The Sequoias are one of the most special things on earth. It is simply staggering to stand among them and just be. I place it in the top tier of the amazing parks that make up our NPS.

I said to the park ranger "so where is the giant forest" and he laughed. Said go down this road and you can not help but see it and laughed again. Well, sure enough soon the car was surrounded by huge inspirational natural wonders.

Pictures do not do these trees justice compared to experiencing them in real life. A must see bucket list.
