Majestic trees in a nice forest
11/2020 • Perhe
It is impressing to see these old and majestic trees. The site has several nice trails that suits all levels. The best is to take one of the longer trails with less people. For example the Mariposa Grove Trail up to Wawona. We were surprised over the amount of people not wearing mask on the trail and thought that was a bit dis-respectful.

Amazing place

The added 2 mile hike in and out makes this a little more challenging but it is amazing and highly recommended.

Nice place to visit but I would take the shuttle and not do the hike. The hike is easy but time consuming.

A Wonderful Place to Take the Family
8/2020 • Perhe
The newly redone pathway through the Mariposa grove of giant Sequoias offers a great view of these beautiful and ancient trees for the whole family. The path is easy to travel and because you are under these giants mostly in the shade. If you have never stood under one of these trees then prepare to be amazed! They are huge and just amazing to behold !

Worth the hike
8/2020 • Perhe
The shortest route to see the giant sequoia and Tunnel tree is 6 miles round-trip. 2 miles through the forest to get there which was lovely and partially shaded with the possibility of seeing wildlife like deer, then about 2 miles in the Sequoia Grove, then 2 miles back. There are water fountains at the Sequoia Grove entrance before the 2 mile loop. We have a nine-year-old and 11-year-old and although they were really big troopers, it was a bit hard for the nine-year-old as she got a little tired and cranky towards the end.

one of the best experiences of my life.
7/2020
i am so very glad we got to experience this. my wife and I took our oldest here for her graduation present and it was such a great experience. we came july 2020 during the coronavirus upheaval and couldn't get a day entry pass so we took the YARTS bus into the park and it dropped us of right at the grove parking lot, which is literally right next to the park entrance. we got there as early as the YARTS bus could get us there, so we arrived at the mariposa grove parking area/bus stop at 830am. since they aren't running the park shuttles we walked the trail from the parking area to the grove. there was barely anyone else around, only maybe 10-20 cars in the parking lot. we are very active people so the hike to the grove on the trail wasn't difficult and took us about 45 minutes to cover the 2 miles. once we got to the grove (I want you to listen carefully to me here), it was one of the greatest experiences of my life. there was basically no one there. i counted 11 other people the entire time we were walking around the grove. it felt like we had it to ourselves and i felt so honored to have gotten that experience. i have never had that feeling in nature before. the trees are absolute giants and it was so cool to see them. we sat for 15 minutes on the benches at/under the grizzly giant and just absorbed how large and awesome it is and didn't see another person the whole time we sat there. we walked the rest of the Grizzly Giant Loop Trail and it was just as excellent as anyone could ever ask for. we didn't rush ourselves and we spent a comfortable amount of time in the grove and enjoyed ourselves there. we made it back to the grove parking area to catch the YARTS bus back out of the parking area about 1230 or so. since we didn't know how long it would take us to get to the grove, we were hiking with a good bit of hustle, but were able to take our time in the grove and on the hike back to the parking area. awesome experience, highly recommend. if you decided to take the trail from the parking area to the grove, your shoes and lower legs are going to be absolutely covered in dust. my wife and daughter used the time before the bus came one we got back to the parking area to wash their legs. being the caveman that i am i chose to just stew in my grime.

Best place to see sequoias
7/2020
We had done the Tuolumne Grove a couple days earlier and were going to skip this one because it was a little more out-of-the-way for us. We had time on our last day and decided to check it out, and I'm very glad we did. The Mariposa Grove, though WAY more crowded, is a much better display for Sequoias than the Tuolumne. The Grizzly Giant is amazing - pictures cannot do it justice. During COVID there were no shuttles so we had to hoof it, though some cars were driving all the way up with handicap stickers. We decided to walk the road since we were flying out later that day. It's a steady incline on the way in, but the way down was more pleasant. We saw a bear on the hill above the road on the way in - very cool! If you want to take the road, park closer to the entrance. Most cars were parked close to the trail so we almost forgot we could take the road. The distances are about the same.

Major COVID changes
7/2020
There used to be a parking lot just outside of the biggest trees at the grove BUT the park has closed that lot and is making everyone use the lower lot by the visitor center. What you don't know until you get there is that you now have to hike 2 miles, up hill, on dirt to get to the grove. We had a toddler in a stroller with us and only made it about 3/4 mile before we had to call it quits.

This is an easy walk with some uphill. Beautiful Sequoias and accessible to all ages. A must see on your visit to Yosemite. We did this right after Sentinel Dome trail and enjoyed it very much.

I would skip it especially if you are planning to visit any other parks in California that has redwoods.
