Augustus T. Dowd could scarcely believe his eyes when he stumbled upon one of nature’s majestic wonders in 1852. Hunting down a wounded bear in the hills above the mining camp of Murphys, Dowd instead found a tree of mammoth proportions. After initial skepticism about the size of these trees, news of Dowd’s discovery quickly spread. Local businessmen soon acquired the grove of 100 mammoth trees, or giant sequoia, and built accommodations for travelers. Thus began one of California’s earliest tourist attractions in 1853. Dedicated as a California State Park in 1931, Calaveras Big Trees State Park hosts 250,000 annual visitors who come from around the world to marvel at these wondrous giants in their magnificent natural surroundings.

About the Author:

The park’s colorful history springs to life in these pages by writer Carol A. Kramer and the nonprofit Calaveras Big Trees Association. Images from the archives of Calaveras Big Trees State Park, the Calaveras County Archives, the Old Timer’s Museum, the Calaveras County Historical Society, and the Society of California Pioneers showcase the rich history of this treasure of California’s state park system.
