Tuolumne Grove is a giant sequoia grove located near Crane Flat in Yosemite National Park, at the southeastern edge of the Tuolumne River watershed. It is about 16 miles (26 km) west of Yosemite Village on Tioga Pass Road. The grove contains many conifers, including a few Sequoiadendron giganteum as well as Abies concolor and Pinus lambertiana.

The grove hosts about six visible giant sequoias amongst a dense understory of dogwood. The grove also features the "Dead Giant", a fallen giant sequoia with a stagecoach-sized tunnel cut through it.
