"The smallest of Yosemite’s three giant sequoia groves, the Merced Grove is also the quietest. Even midsummer you will see only a few people as you descend an old road to two clusters of large trees, including six giants in a near-perfect line." Read more

Easy hike esp with kids, less crowded on weekdays.
Since Mariposa Grove is closed for the season due to restoration and I need to show my children Grove of Giant Sequoias. The snow still melting so par of the trails are wet. The trail is a nice quiet walk among the trees.

A nice hike to see some of the most amazing trees. It's a small grove of some 30ish trees at the end of a mile and a half trail that starts as a dirt road and turns into a descending trail. A bit of a uphill hike back to the parking area, but not too bad. We got there at 0800, and had the entire grove to ourselves for about a 1/2 hr.
