Chicago Stump Trailhead

Area Status: Closed
This area is Closed

The Chicago Stump Trail is a short and easy hike to a very interesting and historical site.  The hike weaves through Jeffrey pines and shrubs to a verdant meadow ringed by young sequoias, red firs and azaleas.  The Chicago Stump was originally known as the General Noble Tree.  In 1897,  it was cut down into sections and reassembled at the Chicago World's Fair. This magnificent display was referred to as the "California Hoax," because of widespread skepticism that a species as big as the giant sequoia ever existed.  Distance: 0.6 miles, out and back.
