Pretty laid back walk for you to enjoy with the family. Seeing the large trees up close is pretty amazing

Merced Grove trail is about 3+ miles round trip walk. Mostly easy going down, but coming back you have some steep sections that are strenuous. That said we are in our 70’s and we thoroughly enjoyed...

Super nice hike, takes about 45 min for each direction. It was a good option now that the meriposa entrance is closed due to the fire. It is a bit challenging in a hot day but doable with kids.
A nice way to stretch our legs after hours of driving to the park. About 3 miles total. You go through a burn area then get to the grove. Has toilet and picnic area... We lunched at the trailhead. Enjoy!
