The Giant Sequoias John Muir wrote about are found only in the Sierra Nevada. The largest of all trees, sequoias tower more than 270 feet high and reach diameters of 30 feet. There are 38 sequoia groves in the Giant Sequoia National Monument. The Boole Tree is the last of the huge giant sequoias that had grown until the 1890s in the Converse Basin. It is the largest tree on the National Forest System land and is recognized as one of the largest trees in the world. The Trail of a Hundred Giants at the Redwood Meadow Campground on the Western Divide Highway provides interpretation about the life among the giants sequoias. In April 2000, President Bill Clinton signed a proclamation at this site, establishing the 327,769 acre Giant Sequoia National Monument.
