Located near the South Entrance of Yosemite, the Mariposa Grove is the largest of three groves in the park and is home to over 500 mature giant sequoias. During much of the year a free shuttle is required for use between the Mariposa Grove Welcome Plaza and the Mariposa Grove. There is a variety of trails from easy to strenuous within the grove, as well as some accessible trails.

Wintertime in the Mariposa Grove of Giant Sequoias:
The Mariposa Grove Road closes to vehicles at the end of November and typically reopens no earlier than mid March (this is a routine winter closure). The two-mile road from South Entrance to Mariposa Grove will remain open to hikers, cross country skiers, and snowshoeing.

Please Note:  Mid-January 2021 there was a Mono Wind event in Yosemite & the surrounding area.  Strong winds knocked down 15 of the Giant Sequoias in the Grove and damaged the new restroom facility and some of the new boardwalk in the Grove.

  • The shuttle bus will not operate in the 2021 season. Access to the grove is via a four-mile round-trip hike with 500 feet of elevation change. It's an additional 1.5 miles round trip (and another 500 feet of elevation change) to the Grizzly Giant and California Tunnel Tree. Please bring water to keep everyone in your group hydrated (there is no drinking water available in the Mariposa Grove).
  • The Mariposa Grove Welcome Plaza (near South Entrance) will have flush toilets and drinking water. The Mariposa Grove Arrival Area will have portable toilets and no drinking water. 
  • The main trail to the Grizzly Giant will be closed due to storm damage, but hikers can use the service road to reach the Grizzly Giant. While all other trails are open, hikers may encounter downed trees.
  • Bicycles and vehicles displaying a disability placard can drive on the Mariposa Grove Road to the Arrival Area. No vehicles will be allowed beyond the arrival area.
