“An easy run including a gorgeous giant sequoia hollowed by fire, creating a "chimney" in the trunk.

Once the first big snow of the season comes the Forest Service will close the road. Usually October - May.
This trail makes for an easy 1.1 mile run. This trail begins from a large, dirt parking lot, which makes it easy to access. Along the way, visitors can expect gentle grades, but a consistent uphill incline during the first half of the trail. Once you've started working your way back to the car, you'll have a slightly steeper descent.
The highlight of this loop is its namesake "Chimney Tree" - a gorgeous giant sequoia tree hollowed by fire, creating a "chimney" in the trunk.
You'll be treated to many towering tree species, as well as the ferns that call the understory home.
