Yosemite NP: Mariposa Grove

ca

Star Star Star Star Star

Distance: 5.0 miles


Impressive hike through the massive Sequia Trees. A moderate walk with enough of an uphill to make it challenging. See Trees such as The Grizzly Giant, California Tunnel Tree, the Faithful Couple and others on this beautiful hike.

 This particular hike began with an stroll to the Fallen Monarch then to the Bachelor and the Three Graces before coming to the Grizzly Giant and the California Tunnel Tree.  One you pass the Grizzly Giant the crowds thin out. Continue up hill (the whole trip will be uphill until you reach the Fallen Tunnel Tree then the return trip will be all down hill). 

Follow the well marked path toward the Mariposa Museum and began a walk through a recently burned out area.  Once at the Museum follow the signs to the Fallen Tunnel Tree.

To avoid going back the exact same way you came, follow the signs to the Clothes Pen Tree and the Faithful Couple.  Then simply follow the signs pack to the parking lot.
