Calaveras Big Trees State Park
Welcome to Calaveras Big Trees State Park. Established in 1931, Calaveras Big Trees State Park preserves a mixed conifer forest with two groves of giant sequoias - the North Grove and South Grove. In addition to the giant sequoia trees, you will find the Stanislaus River, Beaver Creek, ancient volcanic formations, natural meadows, and trails throughout the park allow you to discover the area that has awed visitors since 1852.
The South Grove trail remains ACCESSIBLE and OPEN during fire road work. The entirety of the South Grove access fire road (Rim Road, North and South) that surrounds the South Grove Preserve is closed through October 1 for tree work, clearing and road repair. The South Grove trail is still accessible and open.
