  • 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.
  • Huge trees! Old trees! Probably the best place to hike and enjoy the nature. It's just beautiful to look at while hiking.
  • We waited 4 years to visit. Shuttle bus from the parking lot to the grove was clean and efficient. Glad the grove is open. Easy hike on the elevated platform. We took the grove loop for three miles. Be sure to visit the gift shop which supports the Mariposa Grove restoration.
  • Out of this world amazing! Pictures simply do not do justice. It’s worth the hour or two on your way to Yosemite valley.
