Carlon Falls Trailhead to Tuolumne Grove. 13 miles, 6 hours, 2,100 feet elevation gain, multiple water crossings, snow...a lot of snow, Giant Sequoia, a historic wagon trail, and not a single hiker the whole day! Enjoy this hike before it returns to the Wilderness!

Mostly downhill to start. Little icy but not bad. Make sure to have good shoes and warm gloves. 3/7/20

Just a little ice today as it has been warm. Early in the day there were icy stretches, but walking carefully and having hiking poles did the trick. Later in the day top ice had melted a bit and coming up was fine.

Hiked this trail on 1/5/20 and it was super icy and treacherous. We had hiking poles and still slipped and fell a few times — luckily, made it to the Tunnel Tree before turning around. Highly recommend snow shoes and trekking poles if you plan to visit during snow season. It was beautiful but a little sketchy.

Love this trail! But it is icy during the winter. Yak tracks of snowshoes with heavy gripping are recommended. And, if elevation is a challenge, trekking poles are also suggested.

there are definitely more than 5 trees to see. loved it, it was beautiful!

First, I am a horticulture professional, so the Sequoias were my goal and, while few, beautiful specimens. Trail very well maintained and good didactics, it’s not a hike for anything besides enjoying the trees and their companion plants, if you’re looking for a challenge or granite views, skip this one.

Flip-flop (minimal footwear), 24oz water upon return, no bed needed. Short peaceful hike through tall redwoods. 90% paved. Speed hiked in an hour. Only saw 5 or so Sequoias (one denigrated by humans). Recommend Sequoia National Park for Sequoias (also denigrated).

Hikes this easy trail because Tiogo Pass was closed down. It is ok but don't get excited.

Starts with a gentle downhill slope but gets sufficiently steep enough for kid whining. The uphill return trip was a slog. Try Nelder Grove instead of you want sequins and peace.

Big Red is the first really big Sequoia I’ve seen, worth the hike just for that tree. Lots of other big trees and lots of dead trees.

Awesome little trail. It was warm and eventually got hot when I went but the nostalgia and the huge trees make up for it. This trail is all downhill so eventually you have to go back up. Loved it.

It was beautiful, but also quite steep. Did it in the morning with almost nog crowd. Let's see if it's better than the Mariposa Grove in a few days

I loved this trail. it sucked coming back up but I knew that was going to happen. we saw plenty of wildlife and my 3 year old had a blast. bonus points for the volunteer near the bottom to real to my little one about the pinecones of the sequoias.

the first and last mile are paved, then the small loop is dirt. Seemed pretty heavily trafficked, although we went near the end of the day so it wasn't too bad. Pretty darn easy, although I find walking on a paved incline annoying. We did see 2 deer from the trail as well
