  Grizzly Giant
by Ischyros

Several hiking trails wander through this sequoia grove. Most people will hike to Grizzly Giant (pictured) and California Tree but that's it. As a result much solitude can be found if you continue. I find the upper grove to be more interesting anyway! I recommend hiking the grove all the way to the back at Wawona Point, but if you'd rather not hike uphill, then during the summer take the tram tour to the Fallen Wawona Tunnel tree and hike back to the parking lot from there. NOTE: The tram costs money. Check for prices at the ticket office.

Address: Yosemite National Park
Directions: Just inside the south entrance station off highway 41. During the winter, snows close to road to the grove and it is only accessable by hiking or cross country skiing.
