  • The hike to the site is wonderful, the timber walkways beautiful. They allow you to walk among these giant trees without disturbing the surrounding area. Good facilities on-site as well. Easy and most...  more »
  • Beautiful option to enjoy the Sequoias. They are probably more imposing in Sequoia National Park, but I would not rule out going if you have time.

  • Reopened with new trails WOW. This is now a real highlight of Yosemite. Well designed wooden walking trails, signs and markers. Helpful rangers to take you around and offer guided tours. No more asphalt!! Buses run often. Fantastic
  • The size of those sequoia trees are absolutely stunning. We saw a bear on our hike through Mariposa Grove. There are fallen trees that you can climb on top of if you’re limber enough, and some of them are hollow so you can crawl through them. Be careful when climbing though, I fell and got scratched up pretty bad.
