|About these ratings|
"Giant" seems an understatement for this expansive grove of Sequoia trees in the southernmost section of Yosemite. Featured sights include the Fallen Monarch
(a tree that fell more than 300 years ago) and the Grizzly Giant, thought to be the oldest tree in the area, and one of the largest in the world.
On TripAdvisor, travelers rate the Mariposa Grove among the best attractions in all of Yosemite, with many recommending the Big Tree Tram Tour, accessible via the Mariposa Grove Gift Shop at the park's South Entrance. The tour can be expensive for some travelers (about $25 for adults), with some saying that a walk through the grove is more dramatic and worthwhile.
