"This short hike on the edge of Kings River Canyon loops through the logged remnants of what was once the largest grove of giant sequoias. Inexplicably spared the loggers’ ax, only the Boole Tree remains of the old giants, a lone behemoth thought to be the sixth-largest tree in the world."

"Occasionally, size has its advantages; such was the case for the Boole Tree. While hundreds of giant sequoias met the axe in Converse Basin, this lone survivor received a stay of execution because of its immense size. Originally identified as the third largest sequoia in existence, the Boole Tree was spared the fate of its less fortunate neighbors. Although this impressive monarch has the largest base circumference of any sequoia (313 feet), a height of 269 feet and a volume of 47,472 cubic feet ultimately ranked the tree as the eighth largest."

"Boole Tree Loop is a short jaunt that leads to the largest tree within Sequoia National Forest boundaries. Follow the right fork at the trailhead and climb the shady way; the entire first mile is under cover of large yellow pines."

"The bonus on this loop is the stunning views of Kings Canyon leading to the largest of the Sequoia trees in a national forest. Ironically, the 269-foot-tall Boole Tree was named after the superintendent of the lumber company who supervised the cutting of the grove, except for this one tree."
