You Can Open the Gate to a Hidden Sequoia World
Southeast of Three Rivers in the Sierra Nevada is a kingdom of giant sequoias reachable on foot, mountain bike and horseback. Ancient giants here measure as much as 16 feet across, likely wider than your dining room. Save the Redwoods League is working with Sequoia Riverlands Trust and the Bureau of Land Management to buy Craig Ranch and provide easy access to the majestic ancient trees.

HIGHLIGHTS: As the story goes, in 1852 a hunter named Augustus T. Dowd wounded a grizzly and chased him into this forest, only to find trees that were three times bigger than any he'd ever seen before. When he returned to civilization, he began spreading the word about the tall, red-barked giants.
