The Merced Grove of Giant Sequoias offers yet another opportunity to see these magnificent giants. The small parking lot help guarantee that you will not have a lot of competition for the 20 large trees at the end of the trail.
Although Merced Grove of Giant Sequoias is the smallest grove in Yosemite it offers a very good chance to see these rare plants in relative solitude.
The trail down to the Merced Grove of Giant Sequoias is a bit longer than the nearby Tuolomne Grove but it is much less steep and the trees are much closer together. These facts combined with the relative solitude may make this the best spot for tree watching in the area.
