Big old trees, like, really big and really old trees. I can’t stress enough how big these guys are, but lets just say that Hagrid would feel quite like a hobbit among these big boys. It’s an easy enough hike in for the first hour but the deeper you go, the harder the path becomes – but you won’t stop – because the trees go on getting more and more impressive the deeper and deeper you move. The second biggest and the oldest guy here is the Grizzly Giant – about 2400 hundred years old, and the largest is the Washington Tree. If you want to check out the other beauties though, there’s the Fallen Monarch, The Bachelor and Three Graces, the Faithful couple, the Telescope tree (still living, but almost completely hollow), the Columbia (tallest in the park at 87 metres) and the Wawona Tunnel Tree. What’s up with the really cool-yet-somewhat-creepy-names? Also, follow the signs in the park to the Mariposa Grove Museum.


  • Tips & Warnings: Take the tram for $25 if you don’t want to hike – it’s hop on and hop off and will take you to the museum which is halfway up the grove.
  • Parking might be full by even 10:00 am. Best to take the shuttle to get in.

  • Shops at the bottom of the groves.

  • Please be aware that the museum is closed. Also tram doesn't go up through the woods anymore since reconstruction. It opened again June 2018 for public. It is a very nice hike up to wanoma point. Please check website.

  • If you can't make it down to Sequoia National Park to see the amazing groves of giant trees there, then you can see the Mariposa Grove. In the winter, you will be limited to walking for about two miles to get to the grove as they close the gate. In summer it can get quite full. It is still worth it.

  • Awesome scenery and a few large tree's which have fallen. Free bus tours are available from the Mariposa Grove bus stop.

  • The finest museum in the entire Grove!

  • There are some big ol' trees, or BOTs as my wife calls them in this grove. I wonder when they will tire of our puny human efforts and come alive to walk again.
