This weekend we went up to visit our friends in Wilsonia and took the opportunity to wander a bit in the Sequoia Creek Grove area. It's a very pretty grove, and with Sequoias and the small creek that has a couple of lovely and picturesque waterfalls, it makes the hikes very rewarding in scenery. I have read there is a large sequoia in the grove named the South King Tree but don't know where it is or if it still exists.
I measured the largest tree that I found in the area. It seemed to me to be a decently large specimen, located one draw to the south of Viola Falls and very near it. However, it didn't seem big enough to be a record breaker. It turned out to be approximately 18,500 cu.ft. in volume. Not a Champion, but with an impressive base. Here are the measurements i came up with on the tree:
