You can either walk or take the park bus (open top). If you are physically able I recommend you walk it because you can take it all in much better on the ground, spend a lot more time just staring at things, take pics. If you are lucky you can even find cones the size of your forearm! (if unlucky... More

Big trees, trails, and crowds. You can get up close to the trees here, but it might take a while for you to find a parking spot. But it's worth a stop if you're entering the park from the south. The hike to the top is easy to moderate, but may not be worth it if you're expecting anything more... More

It is so hard to try and describe these monsters!! Even photos with us standing next to them do no justice in my mind. We did the walking loop and it was a trek for me. I am not in great shape and it was our first day in high altitude so I was struggling. But my husband pushed me... More

We took the advice and arrived before 10am and enjoyed the not so crowded hike. We spent maybe 2 hours. Hiked from the parking lot to the museum and back. Ive never seen such big trees in my life!The trees smell so good. There really wasnt much in the museum and I think it wouldnt have been so nice if... More

We took this pleasant walk through the Sequoias early in the morning - the car park gets very busy later in the morning. The trees are magnificent and hugely impressive. You can walk trough one of the trees and climb on another.

We visited the grove and were in awe of these amazing trees. We made the mistake of driving all the way to the grove and were told the parking lots were full and that we needed to drive back to the Mariposa store and take a shuttle. It would be nice if somehow this information could be radioed back so... More

Traveling with a 30 year old adult son in a wheelchair. A strong man and we are ver flexible We had a great time in Yosemite in general. Many of The paths are too steep to travel in a chair safely for most. My son did it anyways and his hands took the break punishment. New gloves are needed. You... More

Hiking through the Mariposa Grove of Big Trees gives you a sense of being in a cathedral -- it's an awe-inspiring experience. Plenty of uphill, but you can take your time. The trees are so gorgeous!

The major opportunity for seeing giant sequoia trees in Yosemite is this grove near the South entrance. The disappointment lies in the fact that unless you are willing and able to walk long trails, you have to take the tram ride which costs $25 and takes and hour or so. Since we were also going to visit Sequoia/Kings Canyon on... More
