  • description:
    The Giant Forest is the most accessible of all giant sequoia groves, as it has over 40 miles of hiking trails. Five of the ten most massive trees on the planet are located within the Giant Forest. The historic Giant Forest Village has been dismantled, so the trees can have their space to grow, without all the commercialism on the roots.
    Once the home of nearly 300 buildings, the area now has four, with no commercial activity, now a designated "day use" area. The Giant Forest Lodge Historic District was designated in 1978, encompassing the main area of development in the Giant Forest grove. The development was demolished between 1995 and 2000.
