Mariposa Grove Reopens!

Mariposa Grove Reopens
All Day

Very exciting news! The restored Mariposa Grove will reopen to the public on Friday, June 15, 2018.  Bus reservations will be available beginning at 7:00 am PDT on Tuesday, May 15, 2018 HERE for the summer and fall seasons from June 15, 2018 through November 30, 2018.

The Mariposa Grove restoration project has been underway for the past 3 years. Visitors to the Mariposa Grove will notice improvements such as:

  • A consolidated parking area and information station at South Entrance
  • Many of the roads within the grove converted into hiking trails
  • Over a half-mile of new accessible trails and boardwalks providing universal access for all visitors to the grove
  • Flush toilets replacing vault toilets in the grove
  • Removal from the grove of commercial activities such as the gift shop and tram tours
