About Mariposa Grove Of Giant Sequoias, Yosemite National Park

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.

Mariposa Grove Of Giant Sequoias, Yosemite National Park Reviews

  • 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.

  • oct 2017. it was closed. maybe due to repair of fire.

  • Such a breathtaking place! It's worth it to hike to all the trees, especially to see the Grizzly Giant, They're amazingly huge!. Beautiful and peaceful place.

  • This is a must visit. I spent ten minutes sat watching a woodpecker hunt for food in the peace of the forest, and trekked to see all of the highlighted big trees. This enchanting place truly makes you reflect on nature and mankind and how they interact. Be warned, all the trees are uphill from the car park, but there is mobility assistance available at peak times.

  • Amazing Forrest with a path through the tree.
