Mariposa Grove of Giant Sequoias Reopens June 15

If you are planning to visit Yosemite National Park this summer, you will once again be able to walk among the magnificent trees at Mariposa Grove of Giant Sequoias starting June 15.  This article provides all of the details on the recent renovation to the grove and environs.

Mariposa Grove is located about one hour south of Yosemite Valley, just inside the southern entrance to Yosemite National Park.  The closest lodging includes Big Trees Lodge (Wawona Hotel) inside the park, Tenaya Lodge just outside of the park, and The Redwoods on private land inside the park boundaries.

Blue Heron no longer offers tours to Yosemite National Park.  Most tour operators out of San Francisco do not include Mariposa Grove on their tours.  Your best bet is to drive or to take the YARTS bus from Fresno.
