Settlers' Grove of Ancient Cedars

My wife and I took off in the morning to try and see some harder to find sites.  Unfortunately, this meant a lot of dirt roads so we ended up not seeing the waterfalls out there, but we did make it to the Settlers' Grove of Ancient Cedars.  This was a little difficult to find as the directions I had were wrong!  Basically to get there, you turn off on the road toward Murray and a few miles down the road you will pass a large pond on your left and see a small sign showing the turnoff for Settlers' Grove.  The park was nearly empty and after a short, well-maintained trail we entered the main grove of large trees.  They weren't as big as I was expecting, but there was still something majestic about standing at the bottom of these trees.

I recently hiked this trail as well! I thought the trees were pretty majestic. I have some detailed directions in my blog on how to get there if anyone needs them.
