Yosemite National Park Feature


Top Reasons to Go to Yosemite National Park

Wet and wild: An easy stroll brings you to the base of Lower Yosemite Falls, where roaring springtime waters make for misty lens caps and lasting memories.

Tunnel vision: Approaching Yosemite Valley, Wawona Road passes through a mountainside and emerges before one of the park's most heart-stopping vistas.

Inhale the beauty: Pause to smell the light, pristine air as you travel about the High Sierra's Tioga Pass and Tuolumne Meadows, where 10,000-foot granite peaks just might take your breath away.

Walk away: Leave the crowds behind—but do bring along a buddy—and take a hike somewhere along Yosemite's 800 miles of trails.

Powder your nose: Winter's hush floats into Yosemite on snowflakes. Lift your face to the sky and listen to the trees.
