Giant sequoia trees in Mariposa Grove in Yosemite National Park

Here more than 2 trees are described in Mariposa Grove in Yosemite National Park (Mariposa County).

Yosemite National Park is located across the western slopes of the Sierra Nevada mountain chain. Yosemite is internationally recognized for its spectacular granite cliffs, waterfalls, clear streams, Giant Sequoia groves, and biological diversity. Almost 95% of the park is designated wilderness. Over 3.7 million people visit Yosemite each year.

Although not the first designated national park, Yosemite was central to the development of the national park idea, largely owing to the work of people like Galen Clark and John Muir.
