I have been going to Yosemite for over 15 years at least 3 times a year and this was my first trip to the Grove. As I usually come in the Hwy 41 entrance as soon as you enter you make a right and the Grove is 2 miles up the road. The sheer mass of these trees is amazing.... More

The Mariposa Grove was more than we anticipated. There are no words to describe their size and beauty. These trees are a natural world wonder...

On the way out of Yosemite, we decided on the spur of the moment to stop to see the sequoias. We were already planning to go to the redwoods in Muir Woods, so I wasn't too excited about these trees. I am so thankful that we stopped here. --Mariposa Grove is just gorgeous. It is worth it, even if you... More

We came here last year as part of a tour from San Fran and was only able to spend 45 minutes in the Grove. We came back this year and spent a half day. Took the shuttle tour which was excellent and gave some great history of the Grove. While crazy bumpy and a little pricey at $26 per person,... More

The Mariposa grove itself gets a 5, but the tram tour gets a 3. After a long day touring around Yosemite Valley, we stopped into the grove on our way out. It's so worth it! These trees are amazing. It's so peaceful here, Mother Natures Church. I've done the self guided walking tour when I was younger and fitter and... More

We stayed at the Wawona Hotel which is close to the Mariposa Grove shuttle, so we decided to go see the giant trees. What a great experience it was! We went on the hour long tram ride and it was well worth the cost!

Loved visiting these amazing trees! With our mobility issues, we were especially grateful for the Tram Tour.

The trees are enormous. To stand next to them and to look at their massiveness is overwhelming. To walk through the park is tiring, more tiring than it should have been and I am not sure why. What was interesting was finding all the trees that have been given names and why the names were assigned to those trees. Most... More

You have to see them in real life to fully appreciate the size of these enormous trees. To get a feeling of how long they have stood there. Defying fires and time - they are amazing. We saw these as part of a full day coach tour. But understand that access by vehicle will be restricted soon. So if you... More

Amazing place. I did a short walk of around 3 miles round trip with my family. Amazing selection of sequoias - it's hard to believe how big they actually are until you are there in person. I highly recommend a visit if you are in Yosemite.
