“Celebrated as the world's most magnificent trees”
Reviewed 28 August 2014

The trees are enormous. To stand next to them and to look at their massiveness is overwhelming.

To walk through the park is tiring, more tiring than it should have been and I am not sure why.

What was interesting was finding all the trees that have been given names and why the names were assigned to those trees.

Most of the trees are protected by guard rails. But in some areas while leaving the park you can actually walk up to one and touch the bark. The bark feels like some sort of velvety fabric.

“Amazing”
Reviewed 28 August 2014

You have to see them in real life to fully appreciate the size of these enormous trees. To get a feeling of how long they have stood there. Defying fires and time - they are amazing.
We saw these as part of a full day coach tour. But understand that access by vehicle will be restricted soon. So if you get a chance to go soon - then do.

“Just amazing - what magnificent trees”
Reviewed 28 August 2014

Amazing place. I did a short walk of around 3 miles round trip with my family. Amazing selection of sequoias - it's hard to believe how big they actually are until you are there in person.
I highly recommend a visit if you are in Yosemite.

“Those are some big trees!”
Reviewed 27 August 2014

This is a must see. Trees that are 3000 years old. You feel like your in another world. You can walk the tour or take the guided tour on the tram and is narrated by a guide that's what we took and really enjoyed it.It was about 24 dollars each but worth it.
