Description

The Clothespin Tree, appropriately named due to the shape of its trunk, got its shape from multiple natural forest fires burning its base. From the Clothespin Tree, meander uphill through the towering sequoias. Pass through small meadows with downed trees and shadier sections along the way. Soon the Nature Trail and Nature Trail Connector branch off to the left. Continue straight (to the northeast) past the toilets and water source. The trail ends in a picturesque clearing, where a small log pioneer cabin sits dwarfed by its lofty neighbors. This structure was built in 1930 from sugar pine logs harvested nearby.

Flora & Fauna

Beautiful sequoias line the trail.
