“Peaceful hike”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 10, 2013

This is a pretty easy two mile hike. We made the trip with about 2 inches of snow on the ground, with kids in backpacks. Not bragging, just saying this is a reasonably accessible trail where you get to see the giant trees without being crowded. We actually just made this a short detour, day-hike as we were exiting the main part of Yosemite to the south. Like the rest of Yosemite, the weather is pretty variable so pack smartly.

“Just You and the Giants”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 14, 2013

Not as developed as the Mariposa Grove but far more natural and quiet. About a two mile hike ... very pleasant in the summer ... worth the 2 hours on your way up the Tioga Road. Trail is marked and there are some great sequoias in this section.

“The two mile hike is priceless!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2013 via mobile

The journey to the grove and back is 2 miles.

The descent downwards is very pleasant but, beware- the trek back can be a challenge, especially in snow.
