  • Nice but very touristy.
  • You can’t park close to Grizzly Giant tree anymore. You have to hike about 6 miles round trip
  • Must see.
  • beautiful place. great landscaping before you arrive
  • The trees are great. However, many of the parking areas are shut down, so the hikes are very long - be prepared.
