The walk to the grove is all downhill, but be prepared for about 450 ft of elevation on the way back! The trees are amazing to behold.

To this is how it felt, anyway. It is not a long hike, maybe a mile each way, by strenuous, particularly for some one with respiratory issues. But, at the end one is rewarded with a tunnel tree and relatively quiet since people seem to...More

Like any thing in the Park, make sure to wear hiking/sports shoes, it is a 1.5 mile hike one-way... down hill first, then up hill. It is worth the time gives perspective to the various "giant" trees in the forest.

Not many places in Yosemites where can find public conveniences. This is one. The track is fairly steep for average tourist, but is fun walking through the large trees.

The two miles walk in the shade of the giant sequoias was really pleasant. The thousand year old giant sequoia trees were imposing and awesome to look at them. It is fantastic to stoop through a hollow tree trunk. Look out for deer’s, birds and...More

Giant Sequoias are a must for a trip to California. Mariposa was closed so we went here - we weren't disappointing. This is a nice short hike where you can get up close to them. Walk under a giant sequoia trunk or through a fallen...More

Watch for bears. It is easy to wander among the marvelous trees and lose track of the surroundings. Perhaps come nose to nose with a deer, inadvertently, while walking about. But to come between bear cubs and their mother is not the best thing to...More

We took it easy and the round trip including a leisurely look at the giants at the bottom of the hill took a little over an hour. The young and sprightly may do it quicker of course. Some brave people were pushing strollers and wheelchairs...More

The closure gate for Tioga Road is east of the parking lot for Tuolumne Grove. Tuolumne Grove will be accessible in January.
