We drank in multiple national parks on this trip including Crater Lake, Sequoia, and Yosemite and somehow the Tall Tree Groves subtly blew us away the most. You have to get to the visitor center early enough to get one of the fifty car passes...More

This is a special place that requires a bit of planning. Access to the one lane road is via a locked gate. You get the combination at the park visitor center which opens at nine, and they limit access, so plan accordingly, particularly if you...More

So pretty with all the huge trees,and to think the cAli forests were like this years ago. Couldn't help but photo several of the trees,so tall and stately. You could smell the pines with the damp air which makes the winter driving another delight.

Throughout a lot of the hike I had a lot of trouble looking up though, because there was so much interesting stuff happening around me! Banana slugs! Ghost snails! Weird, lush ferns that look like Jurassic Park! The trees (including, allegedly, the tallest tree in...More

We parked at the bottom of the hill (trailer turn around) at the trailhead and hiked in. I drove up Lady Bird Johnson and it was paved to that point. If the park issues a permit to drive into the grove I'd ask for a current... More
