Features Views

Family Friendly Amazing trees!

The Mariposa Grove closed on July 6, 2015, for restoration, and isn't expected to open again until the spring of 2017. See details of the Mariposa Grove Restoration here:nps.gov/yose/planyourvisit/…

Description

This is a handy and nearly level way to get across the middle of Mariposa Grove. The trail can be used in either direction. It is partially shaded, traveling though stands of sequoias and pleasant meadows. The trail features the Faithful Couple on its western end and heads east towards Grizzly Giant and California Tunnel Tree (via the Outer Loop Trail) on its eastern end.
