The giant sequoias, in the western side of the Sierra Nevada Mountians, were noted by Augustus T. Dowd in 1852. In 1927, Bob and Bernice Arnold built Ebbetts Pass Inn and Restaurant within the outskirts of the giant sequoia forest. The Ebbetts Pass Inn became as a stop for people visiting Calaveras Big Trees State Park and for those traveling along the Ebbetts Pass route to Bear Valley and to other towns.
