When the road is closed for weather or crowds, walking, skiing, or snowshoeing, depending on the season, gets you to the grove via a two-mile stint with 500 feet of elevation. Plus, the energy expended allows a little indulgence after an evening repast, especially if dining at the park’s culinary masterpieces in the Ahwanee, Yosemite Lodge at the Falls, or the Wawona.
A map of the trees is available for a truly modest fee from various spots within the grove, but it can also be downloaded for free online. The cartographic details ensure no important tree goes unnoticed.
