Please help Northern California National Parks & San Francisco itinerary

Jump to last reply

Our family is headed to Northern California to see some of the National Parks and spend a few days in San Francisco. We are not completely sure how to break up the trip and are looking for advice. We like to hike and have three very active kids. Also pretty excited about time in SF. Have not had success getting lodging within Yosemite yet. We have started thinking about either Yosemite West or some combination of YW and Evergreen or something on the northern side of the park. This would give us a chance to see some of this side before heading to the southern attractions.

Day 1: Arrive SF & head out to Yosemite (TH)
Day 2: Yosemite (FR)
Day 3: Yosemite (SA)
Day 4: Yosemite (SU)
Day 5: Yosemite or drive to Sequoia ) (M)
Day 6: Sequoia (or drive there and have 1/2 day) (T)
Day 7 Kings Canyon (W)
Day 8 Either KC or Sequoia (TH)
Day 9 Head back to SF Giants game F
Day 10 SF
Day 11 SF
Day 12 Head home

So did we split this up right? I should mention in SF we hope to visit Alcatraz, bike the Golden Gate bridge (over with ferry back?) and see several attractions. We have family to visit as well as would hope to go to Muir Woods. I don't think we have enough time in SF so I guess we cut one from Yosemite and move everything back a day? Started planning a while ago but never got the accommodations I had hoped for in Yosemite. Now second and third choices are starting to book up. Some have big penalties for changing reservations so I need help. Thanks for your insights!
