California National Parks: Yosemite

Adventure in Yosemite National Park


Yosemite National Park

Yosemite National Park

Recreation in Yosemite National Park is abundant. Hikers may trek down more than 800 miles of trails, whether it’s the stunning Yosemite Valley, or other sections such as Glacier Point Road, Wawona and Mariposa Grove of Giant Sequoias, Hetch Hetchy, White Wolf, and Tuolumne Meadows. Yosemite hikers may look forward to anything from wildflower walks to multi-day back packing trips through this 761,268-acre national park in California's Sierra Nevada region.

Other activities include street biking, mountain biking, auto touring, fishing, and bird watching. Visiting in the winter? Be sure to visit Badger Pass Ski Area – California’s oldest the oldest alpine ski area – for downhill skiing in Yosemite Valley.

For a little history on the park, be sure to visit the Yosemite Museum, located in the famed Yosemite Valley. Neighboring the Yosemite Valley Visitor Center and the Indian Village of Ahwahnee, the museum showcases exhibits, photography and documentation of the Ahwaneechee people, park geology, and the efforts of early naturalists like John Muir and Galen Clark – plus some history on the national park service as a whole. Engage both body and mind during your time at Yosemite National Park.
