South Grove Trail Professional Review and Guide

"One of only 75 remaining groves of giant sequoia, the South Grove of Calaveras Big Trees State Park is a truly inspiring sight. This loop trail passes through previously logged-over land to reach a stand of the park’s largest trees. A side trip will take you to the Agassiz Tree, the largest sequoia in the park and one of the world’s top 10 biggest trees. An interpretive guide is available from the visitor center, with names and information about individual trees along the trail. Terrain: Dirt path through an old-growth giant sequoia and second-growth pine forest."

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.
