Snowshoeing in Giant Sequoias

  • Calaveras Big Trees State Park Visitor Center 1170 CA-4 Arnold CA 95223 United States (map)

Join the California Center for Natural History and Save the Redwoods League for a snowshoeing adventure in Calaveras Big Trees State Park.

This is a unique opportunity to learn the natural history of giant sequoias, the biggest trees on the planet, and hear the latest research on how these trees are responding to climate change.

Come prepared for several hours of snowshoeing on moderate trails through giant sequoia groves. Bring snacks and lunch, and dress to be out in the snow. Unless there is severe weather, we will trek—rain, snow, or shine!

The morning of the hike, we will meet at the Calaveras Big Trees Visitors Center; more information will be sent to you upon ticket purchase.

You will be responsible for bringing your own snowshoes and poles (recommendations for rentals below). Be sure to reserve your equipment as soon as you purchase your tickets, since stores tend to be booked fairly far in advance. We will not have any to lend you on-site.

Cost of Event = $35.00, and does not include the park entrance fee of $10 per vehicle or the rental of snowshoes and poles.

*This event is sold out.*
