Entering this trail from the Tenaya side is a very tough climb for about the first 1/2 mile. After that it is a gentle grade along the ridge until you get to the Giant Sequoias. Make sure to stop and take a pictures of these massive trees.

After that it is a fun flowing descent down to the parking area for Nelder grove.

There are several other short trails near here that lead to other trees. If you have time you can explore. Once you reach Nelder grove you can do the Bull Buck loop tree loop trail.
