You enter this magical forest about 14 miles from the park entrance. The drive getting there is quite beautiful with great views and pulloffs along the way, but there was always something extra special about getting to this part.

Entering the Giant Forest, I always breathed a sigh of contentment just being among all these ancient beautiful beings.
Each tree seemed larger than the next and the interesting twists and turns of their trunks were endlessly fascinating.
I worried about the damage done to this giants with the road so close to their rather delicate root systems. There are lots of signs around explaining how they are much more conscious of preserving their health now than they were in the 1950's before they knew of the impact of such traffic was.
The Sentinel is the featured tree at the Giant Forest Museum, about 18 miles from the entrance. They have some interesting exhibits and info on the trees here, so don't miss it.
