Massive and thousands of years old and still there after being hit by lightning and withstanding forest fires for centuries. The strange thing is the trees outer layer is soft and hairy if you haven't seen one before.

A must see place if you are visiting Yosemite. The small visitors centre is informative. The volunteer staff are pleasant, very helpful and willing to answer any questions you may have regarding the park and the trees.

We had spent the morning on a glorious five mile hike through Hetchy Hetchy but decided to throw a quick trip to see the Sequoias. The initial coolest thing was that we spent the day in shorts and t shirts in low 70 degree weather...More

An amaizing place to visit. If you ever want to feel small next to another living organism, stand next to a giant sequoia. The Tuolumne Grove is one of three groves of sequoia trees inside the boundaries of Yosemite National Park.

It's quite the walk down to the arched tree (tree you can walk through). Along the way down you'll see some impressive and giant trees. Something you have to see! If it's a hot day you'll get some great shade under the trees and when...More

Are dogs allowed if controlled on leash?

No. Yosemite is wild-animal-friendly, not pet-friendly. Pets are allowed on fully paved roads, sidewalks, and bicycle paths. They are not allowed on trails.
Is this trail safe to walk ie no wildlife will jump on us :)

It's a paved road... very unlikely you will encounter any wild animals, as too many stupid humans around :)
