An enchanted magical forest! It was a beautiful day to visit the park. The crisp misty air, the scent, the green & the trees. Its truly a natural tree museum. Loved the experience. Really liked how the park offers a boardwalk. Well preserved & maintained.
What an absolutely magnificent park! The trees are truly one of the most spectacular sights you will see. And the park is laid out well, with a boardwalk trail for the most popular poop, and dirt trails for those looking to go out a bit longer. The nice bit about this park of course is it’s proximity to SF, and it gives you a nice taste for what the wilderness of Northern California is like!
How do I give this place 6 stars? Wish we had something so magnificent and peaceful within driving distance of my city. Great escape. Well taken care of. Majestic trees, lots of wildlife. We saw a deer up close right next to the path. Note that you have to get parking in advance. Luckily we showed up an hour before closing and didn't have to worry about it.
One of the prettiest places I’ve experienced in California. Pro tip: get your parking pass online in advance, there’s no reception down by the lot and you might have to drive right back up the mountain if you don’t plan ahead. Perfect for slow and active walks, but I’d recommend taking your time!
Giant Sequoia trees only 30 minutes away from San Francisco! You don't need to drive for 3 hours. Very recommended. Great photos opportunities. They are open on Christmas day. Make sure to reserve parking online beforehand.
