Tuolumne Grove Tours

Tuolumne Grove
Home to towering Sequoia trees, Tuolumne Grove is one of the most popular day hikes in Yosemite National Park. The hike to the grove is relatively short—only 2.5 miles (4km) round trip—and generally takes around two hours including the stops to crane your neck skyward and admire the ancient trees. One of the park’s three Sequoia groves, Tuolumne Grove is home to 25 of the massive trees, and also includes a “drive through tree,” which although it is no longer open to vehicles, makes for one of the more interesting photos you’ll take when visiting the park.

To learn more about the history of the grove, as well as the trees themselves, you can join in a guided hike to the grove when the trail is open in summer, or experience having the grove to yourself on a snowshoeing trip in winter.

Practical Info

Tuolumne Grove is only accessible by car when Tioga Pass Road is open. The season is usually from June-October, when the road is clear of snow, although check ahead with park conditions to inquire about any closures. When open, Tuolumne Grove has ample parking and basic pit toilets at the trailhead. The trail is paved the entire way, although considering the trail drops 400 feet in elevation from the parking lot, visitors should be in moderately good shape and prepared for a two-hour walk.
 
Did You Know? Giant Sequoias like those found in Tuolumne Grove can live for over 3,000 years and are the largest living organisms on Earth.
