CALAVERAS BIG TREES.

Those who desire to see the Calaveras Big Trees can go from Stockton to Murphy’s, seventy-one miles, in one day, fare in the stage, eight dollars. The distance from Murphy’s to the grove is fifteen miles, and there is a good wagon road, so the round trip, spending four or five hours in the grove, can be made in one day on horseback, or by stage, or private carriage. From Murphy’s there is stage communication to the Crimea House, the distance being about thirty miles where a stage runs direct from Murphy’s to Sonora, and six miles further when it goes by way of Angel’s.
