Q: Is the Stevens Canyon entrance the best one for me to use to get to the Grove of the Patriarchs? 

A: While you can enter other park entrances and navigate your way to the Grove of the Patriarchs, the Stevens Canyon Entrance is the station that’s closest to the Grove of the Patriarchs trailhead.

Please note the Grove of the Patriarchs is closed to the public until further notice, due to significant damage from flooding.
