Hiked the trail in winter. Not only enjoyed the giant trees but found a wide variety of mushrooms & fungi. Checked with the ranger & found out that the fungi may add to the health of the trees. Check out our video at and visit

Beautiful trail. The trees are amazing. The hike is fairly easy but you will want to bring something to drink. Don't forget your camera.
