This is an amazing place, the trees are breathtaking and the view from Wawona Point spectacular. To walk around the whole place takes about 4 hours or so, but well worth it.

Brilliant! Awesome. We took the guided tour in a little tram with audio-guided. You will have all the info you want and still have time after to hike where you want to go back in the park. For more pleasant experience, someone will need to arrive early at the Mariposa grove as the parking lot get full early and then... More

The Giant Sequoias are really thought provoking and awesome to see. Their size are so far beyond us as 5 to 6 foot humans. The Park Rangers are not only informative but enjoy sharing what they know with who ever comes their way.

A very interesting and spectacular setting to view these enormous trees. You need to allow at least three hours if you enjoy walking and taking full advantage of the photographic opportunities. Consider talking the shuttle bus from Mariposa - parking is at a premium and often unobtainable at or near the entrance to the grove.

We dropped in for a quick visit on a road trip and wished we could have stayed longer. Took the tram to make the most of the time we had and it was brilliant. Would have liked to have spent another few hours hiking.

We were trying to pack a lot of activities into our trip to Yosemite. I would suggest if you are going to Mariposa Grove that you go early so you can get parking at the entrance. We arrived and were told that the parking lot was full and you should drive 4 miles back the way you came and a... More

I loved this stop on our way out of the park. The trees are massive and beautiful, unlike anything you will ever see. There is a nice walking path and it doesn't take long to go through. Take time to read about some of the trees too. Interesting info.

These giants are very impressive. The narrated tour is a wonderful introduction. Rumor was, however, that they may end the shuttle tour through the Grove.

My sister and I ended up doing the 4-5 hour hike - which took you around the entire grove (upper and lower groves). The sign says this hike is strenuous - but it really wasn't that bad. Plus, you will be walking so slowly staring up at the beautiful large sequoias, you will be at the top in no time.... More

We liked the trail to the Grizzly Giant. It was moderately challenging. It allowed you to get up close and personal with these huge monarchs of the forest. We followed the suggested day trip of a previous reviewer....early drive to Glacier Point, hike Sentinel Dome, drive to Wawona, and take the shuttle to the Mariposa Grove. It was an efficient...
