Mariposa Grove is closed, which was a disappointment since it was the primary reason we chose our hotel at the South Entrance, and seeing the giant redwoods was one of the primary reasons we scheduled our trip so many months ago. On the bright side,...More

Although they are currently closed, this grove provides you easy access to some amazing trees. If you don't have time to go to the real redwoods, this is a great alternative.

I have visited Mariposa Grove several times, but not in this July, 2015, visit. The Grove is closed for restoration, which was a disappointment. I understand changes are being made which will help in protecting the trees from excessive visitor foot traffic. Looking forward to...More

Wanted to take my husband to see the giant sequoia trees but the grove is closed until 2017. They are doing preservation to the grove right now and you can't even hike in.
