The grove contains many conifers, including a few Sequoiadendron giganteum as well as Abies concolor and Pinus lambertiana.

While smaller than the Mariposa Grove the Tuolumne Grove is less visited[2] and provides a more secluded experience.

The grove features a Dead Tunnel Tree which can be walked through.
