Calaveras Big Trees State Park

Calaveras Big Trees State Park features one of the few places you can see groves of spectacular giant sequoia trees located within over six thousand acres of pine forest on both sides of the Stanislaus River. Campgrounds, picnic areas, and many miles of hiking and bicycling trails make Calaveras Big Trees one of the county's most popular destinations for all ages. Calaveras Big Trees Park is open year round and offers a variety of options for each season. Cross country and snowshoe hikes are popular in the winter. In the sunnier times of the year when dogwoods are in bloom and wildflowers are in abundance, twenty minute to four mile trails offer the perfect challenges for each visitor's capability.
