Tuolumne Grove and Hodgdon Meadow Trail

Tuolumne Grove and Hodgdon Meadow Trail Professional Review and Guide

"Here’s an ideal opportunity to stand alone beneath the world’s largest living things while breathing clear and cool, snowy season air. Time your visit just after fresh snowfall and these mighty giant sequoia trees wear mystical white beards. Tuolumne Grove is the most popular of the three giant sequoia groves gracing Yosemite National Park. But by extending the journey 4 more miles downhill to Hodgdon Meadow and the Big Oak Flat Entrance Station, you benefit from the most overall seclusion of the three hikes. To hike the one-way version of this route, you’ll need to hitch a ride back to the trailhead or prearrange a car shuttle pick-up. Join cross-country skiers on this all-downhill endeavor to admire these hulking trees, among the rarest in America. Discover the bizarre-looking Dead Giant (tunneled in 1878)."
