The Merced Grove is located off the Big Oak Flat Road about 4.25 miles east of the park entrance and 3.75 miles west of the junction to the Tioga Pass Road in Crane Flat. The whole grove is not very large. You can follow the trail and see many mature trees. The most photogenic group of trees is the first group you encounter when approaching the grove (see A on the map). It is a 3-mile round-trip hike with an elevation change of approximately 600 feet.
