Merced Grove Trail

Merced Grove Trail

Northern Yosemite

Crane Flat, Tuolumne County, CA, United States


This trail follows an old road that curves down into the Merced Grove, the smallest and most secluded of Yosemite’s three sequoia groves. Follow the trail for 0.6 miles (1 km), then bear left at the junction. An old cabin, the former summer retreat of park superintendents, is part of the grove’s history. Look for dogwoods blooming here in the spring.
