This trail leads through Converse Basin sequoia grove to Boole Tree the eighth largest Big Tree in the world.

Converse Basin Grove was the world's largest sequoia grove, until virtually every mature tree was cut down early in the 1900's. The Boole Tree was spared, along with a few other less accessible giants. Boole is the world's eighth largest sequoia. A two mile loop trail leads to the Boole Tree from a parking area on Converse Road. This sequoia grove also contains the Muir Snag, the oldest known giant sequoia. This tree, which was over 3000 years old when it died, was discovered by and named for John Muir.
