Giant Sequoias Winter Tour & The Forgotten Stage Coach Trail
There is no place on earth that is more magical than winter time in a Giant Sequoia grove. When you stand at the base of one of these ancient beauties, you can not help but feel captivated by its presence. Embark on a winter journey with one of our local naturalist guides as they take you snowshoeing or hiking down into Yosemite's magnificent groves of giant Sequoias, with standouts like the Two Sisters, the Grizzly Giant and the old tunnel tree. Your local guide will also take you hiking/snowshoeing on a forgotten trial that was used as one of the main routes into Yosemite Valley during the Gold Rush years.
