It's as beautiful as ever and the upgrades to the walking path were worth the wait. The shuttle service runs smoothly and timely. The trees are the big draw here as they well should be. These Giants that reach to the sky are amazing. I...More

This is a must for those visiting Yosemite. There are a number of well marked walks available at the Mariposa Grove from the very gentle to the quite demanding. There is a regular shuttle bus up to the Grove that operates free of charge. The...More

A very scenic drive lead us to the wonderful sequoias of mariposa grove. On the drive there we stopped and enjoyed the view which was breathtaking. We also saw a family of bears, a mom with to cubs. I will never forget this day!

We chose the Mariposa Grove trail to Wiwona Point for our outing and it did not disappoint. An early arrival (8:30am shuttle) maintained the peace and tranquility that this grove is known for although it was noticeably different on our decent a few hours later....More

SPECTACULAR TREES. It’s to bad the NPS has not made accommodations for seniors and the disabled. The only accommodation, is to provide a parking lot that’s available if you have a disability placard. The trails are not wheelchair accessible or elderly friendly. I’m a 66...More
