Day Hikes in Yosemite National Park (Paperback)
Yosemite is one of the world's most loved national parks. The park lies in central California on the western slope of the Sierra Nevada Range. It is best known for Yosemite Valley, with its huge granite monoliths and long waterfalls; the rolling, boulder-strewn meadows along the Tuolumne River; and the rugged, snow-capped peaks of the Sierras. More than 90% of Yosemite is roadless wilderness and home to more than 750 miles of trails. This collection of 80 day hikes in and around Yosemite provides access to all of the well-known park features as well as many lesser-known trails and destinations. Highlights include incredible waterfalls, granite monoliths, expansive alpine meadows, giant sequoia groves, and unforgettable views from unique perspectives that are only accessible from the hiking trails. Outstanding scenery surrounds every trail regardless of its difficulty. Companion guides include Day Hikes In Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks, Day Hikes Around Sonoma County, and Day Hikes Around Napa Valley.
