Just a day trip away from Stanislaus County - Calaveras Big Trees


So today is a wet and windy day here in Stanislaus County.  Of course this is a very good thing for the Central Valley and the near by Sierra Nevada Mountains. The rain is great for helping to fill up our resevoirs and replenish our ground water, both of which will be needed come summer time. But soon it will be spring and time for some more day trips "up the hill."  Here's one of my favorites...

Today's trip is east of Stanislaus County in the Sierra Nevada Mountains of Calaveras County. Today's trip is to the Calaveras Big Trees State Park. This is one of the many parks in the California State Park System.  

I have been here several times and have always enjoyed it.  Calaveras Big Trees State Park consists of two groves of giant Sequoia Redwoods.  If you are in the mood to see some very old and very huge trees this is the place to be.  Some of the biggest trees are very big, 250-300 feet tall and 25-30 feet in diameter.  These trees are really really old, 2000-3000 years old. 

There are well marked trails in both the North and South Groves.  Pick up a pamphlet at the vistors center and check them out.  Each trail has several numbered markers that are fully explained in the pamphlets. After your hike among these amazing trees stop off at the visitors center/museum.  Enjoy the photos below of some of my previous visits to Calaveras Big Trees.

If you are ever in the area and have the chance to visit Calaveras Big Trees State Park do it, you will not be disappointed.

I love going into forests and this one would be worth the trip.

Nothing like being in a forest. It's a magical experience. Glad the rain is filling up the coffers and providing such a nice drink to the often parched landscape.
