The biggest grove of giant sequoias in Yosemite National Park, Mariposa Grove is home to two of the biggest sequoias in the world. The Grizzly Giant is thought to be 1,800 years old. Your best is to hike to the grove, which also features the California Tunnel Tree that you can walk through. You can park at the entrance to the grove, or take a one-hour tram tour that operates seasonally. Visit the National Park Service's website for updates on temporary closures that periodically occur.

  • We were visiting Yosemite National Park and, of course, this was one of our must-sees! This is not something you can easily just drive by, walk to, and see. For people with handicap placards...

  • There is apparently one grove of Giant Sequoias in Yosemite and this is it. Yes, it is a 2 mile hike each way. We were rerouted here due to the fires in Sequoia which would have been much easier...

  • It was good but having been through the Giant Redwoods earlier in our trip I thought this overall walk was just 'ok'. Certainly not a dense grove of specimens. Saying that, I thought the second half of the Grizzly loop was better being comparatively quiet with several nice trees.
  • Wow. The trees are stunningly large. What a beautiful place! Definitely something that needs to be experienced in person.
