No direct access through the campground but we parked across the street and trekked through the empty campground. We had the trail to ourselves which was amazing but keep going and find yourself surrounded by the giant sequoias. Very much worth the hike!

Travel deep into the forest with this trail. Very shady and cool trail. Encounter wildlife is highly probable. Trail is highly enjoyable with incline here and there, but also lengthy.

This trail is like suddenly stumbling into Narnia. We went during the week in early May and only came across one couple. The grove itself is simply awe inspiring... There are no words or pictures to do it justice.

Great little out and back trail. So much to see. Views were amazing, and the massive trees never get old!!! Take plenty of water!

Great trail to a secluded grove of Sequoias. Hands down the best way to experience these trees. The hike is easy, and the reward is worth it. You are almost always alone with the trees when you reach the grove. Great photo spot as well.

Looking at sequoias from the middle of the grove is like standing in the middle of a living stonehenge.

I trek with a 2.5 year toddler, tips:

This is a doable trek, as long as your toddler is used to walking and likes to play and run.
* Ensure you have a portable potty or diapers...or you have trained your toddler ins the art of trail potty.
* Keep enough water and toddler friendly food supply
* Be ready to spend 5-6 hrs on a slow pace.
* You might have to carry your toddler in a few rocky places.

This hike was so breathe taking we were the only ones up there. This was during winter though so less people. The fog rolled in and made everything so majestic. Totally recommend this hike.
