HikingGreat!

We loved the portion of this trail that we went on, we just got to the Grizzly and had to turn back. It is very easy and well maintained. It showcases a beautiful grove of sequoias. We took the Washburn Trail to get to the Big Tree Loop Trail and then to the Grizzly Giant. If you wait until later in the day you can drive up - we heard they unblock the road later in the day.

We loved this trail, it is very easy and well maintained. It showcases a beautiful grove of sequoias. We took the Washburn Trail to get there since the shuttles aren’t running and then veered off to get to the Grizzly Giant. Check it out for yourself in our latest video: https://youtu.be/JdoepOy8K1I

This is nice. Right next to the South Entrance of the park and 4 miles south of Wawona. The little parking lot is not accessible during the Covid restrictions so you will have to hike 1.9 miles from the large/main parking lot to the start of the grove. The grove itself is nice with some impressive large Sequoias and multiple options for trails. Would do it again.

Good out and back, mostly rock on the trail and very hot in the reservoir but plenty of shade along the way - just about 5 miles round trip from the lower parking lot

Beautiful hike, although to even get to the groves you have to hike about 2 miles in.

Beautiful trail! Completed the hike this morning (8/3). We arrived around 7:15 because we wanted to park in the upper lot. There were about four spots left. When we left around 10am, the gates to the upper lot were closed. If you want to park there, definitely plan to arrive before 7:30am. Fairly easy trail and beautiful light through the trees at this time of day.

Beautiful. We started hiking at 7 am, took us 3.5 hours. So recommend this time of day. Saw basically no one and the light through the trees was amazing. Pretty easy trail - but I definitely felt the altitude towards the peak. Saw lots of squirrels, deer, and more.

Nice easy trail for the whole family. There is a lot of option to go further or return back. Tip: try to come to the park before 7:30am to be able to park by the park entrance. The gate closes at 7:30am to oncoming park visitors. You will then have to park your car on the lower lot which is still another 2miles away from mariposa grove trail.

This is an ADA accessible hike that we did at 7pm with my 2 kids (8 & 6). It was easy and the trees were epic. Right now there’s no shuttle from the lower parking to upper (COVID) so it’s 2 additional miles each way. Ranger told us to go early in AM before 7 or late in evening after 7 when gates to upper lot are open so the kids didn’t have to walk 4 miles to see the big trees. Glad she gave us that tip!!!

HikingGreat!

hiked on 7/28. Make sure to get to the parking lot before 7:30am to save yourself a 2 mi hike up from the lower parking. without shuttles running this is a must. Incredible place to spend early morning watching the sunlight come up through the trees. spotted several deer and very few other hikers until mid to late morning. hike to the point was well worth it.

Hiked the grove last Wednesday morning! Parked at 550 just before sunrise and didn’t see another soul until I made my way back down to the lower grove 4.5hrs later. Skipped the point, but it was well worth the trek. Breakfast in solitude at the cabin amongst the lupine meadows was absolutely surreal! Of note, the guardians loop is well maintained, but the trails in between are overgrown with lupine + bees

Beautiful hike! A little hilly in some parts, but definitely doable. Lots of options to make the hike shorter or longer depending on your group. We were lucky to park right at the grove and skip the long walk from the lower lot - a ranger told us that they close the gate at 7:30 AM.

Visited and hiked here July 22, 2020. What a beautiful, well maintained area. COVID-19 prevents folks from entering without a pass inside Yosemite. No shuttles- you have to hike up to the grove. It is about a 500 ft gain in elevation and about 2 miles to get up there. Our family of 6 saw the Grizzly Giant and then hiked on to take in the wildlife. We saw a lot of birds and many deer. Beautiful place.

Beautiful scenic view of a just speechless reservoir an mountain backdrop. One of themost beautiful sights I’ve seen in a while.! There was some lose rocks along the way but it was all manageable. The sun did come out on the way to the falls but their happen to be a nice breeze yesterday that saved it from being to bad of a sunny hike. the water fall wasn’t huge as I expected but still a beautiful experience.

HikingGreat!

Such a lovely trail. I am amazed by the diversity of local animals who are living here. We encountered 2 friendly deers who are not afraid of humans, multiple squirrels, one of them has white collars, a naughty crow. And yes the sequotias are giant! We are so amazed that they can survive all those years. This trail is fairly easy, and there are lots of shades that made this trail very enjoyable. We still have lots of energy on our way back, we basically run the last 2 miles back and had a refreshing swimming in the river we found on our way back to airbnb.

July 17 2020, Perfect time to be in Yosemite during COVID as the park only allows limited people in. Not crowded at all. We did not have reservations into the park. We parked on the roadside 1 mile from South entrance and walked the 1 mile to the park visitor entrance, paid the $20 per person walk-in fee and then walked the 2.2 miles to Mariposa Grove and then another few miles to the Giant Sequoias. This hike is fairly easy and amazingly gorgeous.

Giant sequoia is one of the most fascinating wood I have ever seen. Interesting fact is that the coastal red wood can be the tallest tree and giant sequoia can be highest in volume. The trail is entry level recreational. However much of it should be assigned as educational purpose. Yosemite National Park dedicated much of its effort to the protection and tutorial of sequoia basics. This aroused my interest on such marvelous being and I hope to visit Sequoia National Park one day for an inspiring visit to General Sherman tree, known as the biggest tree in the world.

We had a GREAT time hiking to Wawona Point from Mount Raymond Road! 8 miles, 4 hours, 1,280 feet elevation gain, Giant Sequoia, a golf course, a few hikers, and NO Park Rangers! Whew!
