  • It was an amazing place to visit : sunny and warm for a winter day. The road was closed due to 5-7ft snow but hiking was allowed. Don't miss the Grizzly Giant (almost 1800-2800 years old) and Faithful Couple
  • Awesome. In mid-March the shuttles are not running, but you can walk up the closed road to the Grove and beyond to the grizzly giant and California tunnel tree. Only .1 mile do you have to slog thru snow for a close up.
