Yosemite is endowed with spectacular natural wealth, its varied topography woven with undulating meadows, gushing waterfalls, pristine lakes and majestic peaks which evoke a sense of awe and wonder. And the best way to explore all that the park has to offer is by embarking on exciting excursions across its splendid landscape. While the destination of each trailhead is certainly rewarding, it is the journey, accompanied by breathtaking views of the surrounding vistas, which makes any hike through Yosemite a sheer delight.


Lower Yosemite Falls Day Hike

Lower Yosemite Falls is boisterous, and during a year of high water volume, you may find yourself getting wet as you gaze at this famous waterfall and listen to the amazing noise all the pounding water makes. John Muir wrote about "Moonbows," the rainbows created here by the full moon during April and May. Even without this phenomenon, the falls are lovely and worth the easy half-mile round-trip hike. This walk is likely to be crowded in summer. There is wheelchair access with assistance, and the trail is open all year. For your safety it is recommended that you take this hike during daylight hours.

Mirror Lake Day Hike

Mirror Lake has been gradually filling up with silt, so it is not as mirror-like as it once was, but the lake's banks do provide a glorious view of Half Dome rock. Start from Shuttle Stop 17. This is considered an easy walk, with a mild uphill grade. The distance is just about a mile, and you will probably complete the round-trip in about an hour. This area can get crowded in summer. The trail stays open some winters, depending on snow depth, but in winter hikers must start from Shuttle Stop 19, which adds another mile to the trip. In summer months, there is access for vehicles with current disability placards.

Bridalveil Falls Day Hike

About half a mile round-trip, this trail can get crowded in summer, but it affords breathtaking views of the falls, with water spilling over 600 feet to the valley floor and looking just like a bridal veil. Beware, you may get damp from the spray. Start from and return to the Bridal Veil parking area, located about 10 miles southwest of the Visitor Center on Highway 41. There is wheelchair access with assistance. The trail may be closed during winter months, so call first.

Wawona Road, Parco Nazionale di Yosemite, CA, Stati Uniti, 95389
Half Dome Hike Trailhead

If you are in very good shape and willing to spend a long day hiking, the difficult trek to the top of Half Dome may be for you. It is considered extremely strenuous, with an elevation gain of almost 5,000 feet. Start at Happy Isle Shuttle Stop Number 16 and work your way through the crowds visiting Vernal Falls, and begin a series of switchbacks to the top. The trail rises and falls a fair amount until you get close to Nevada Falls and from there the trail continues to Half Dome. Be warned, however, that the last 200 yards up the back of the dome require you to use steel cable handrails as you scramble up. Roughly 600 people make this trek every day in the summer, but it is not easy. Be sure to bring water, and wear a hat as well as comfortable walking shoes or boots. The trail may be closed in winter. Since this hike can take up to 12 hours to complete, it is recommended that you start early in the morning. For your safety it is best to complete this hike before dark. Check website for more information.

Upper Yosemite Falls Trail Hike

This is a strenuous hike with an elevation gain of over 1,000 feet over the course of about a mile. In other words, it is quite steep. Along that change in elevation, you will get to see how plant life varies at various altitudes. When you get to the top, you will be rewarded with incredible views of both the top of Yosemite Falls and of the Yosemite Valley as a whole. Plan on taking your time. The round-trip usually takes at least two hours and often three. Start at Sunnyside Camp 4 near Shuttle Stop 7. Bring water, and be sure to wear a hat and comfortable walking shoes or boots. The trail may be closed in the winter. For your safety, it is recommended that this hike be completed before dark.

Nevada Falls Hike Trailhead

This very strenuous, seven-mile round-trip hike gains almost 2,000 feet in elevation. Start at Happy Isles Shuttle Stop Number 16 and work your way through the crowds visiting Vernal Falls, and begin a series of switchbacks to the top. The trail goes up and down a fair amount until you near the top. As you climb out of a gully, you will be treated to the famous profile of Nevada Falls. Be sure to bring water, and wear a hat as well as comfortable walking shoes or boots. The trail may be closed in winter. For your safety, it is recommended that you complete this hike before dark.

John Muir Vernal Falls Mist Trail Hike

This hike is also known as the Mist Trail because it passes right beside Vernal Falls, which in the spring blows a heavy mist everywhere, right up to Nevada Falls. This 7-mile roundtrip hike is considered a difficult hike, with a steep 400-foot elevation gain in just over a mile. It is recommended that you wear shoes that grip as the path can be slippery. You can see the gushing cascades from the Vernal Falls Footbridge as well as the top of the falls in the distance. This is among the busiest hikes in the Valley, small wonder given the loveliness of the trail. Plan on spending an hour or two on your walk. The trail may be closed in winter.

Grizzly Giant Loop Trail

The Grizzly Giant Loop Trail is believed to be one of the largest and one of the most famous in Yosemite National Park. The beautiful trail has over 500 giant sequoia trees and it is delightful to walk under these shady giants. Some of the trees are around 2,000 years old, but the over 1,800 years old Grizzly Giant Sequoia is a major tourist attraction.

Yosemite Falls Hike

This very strenuous hike gains a couple of thousand feet in altitude and gets quite steep towards the end. However, if you are in good shape and willing to spend most of the day on this endeavor, you will be delighted when you reach the top and see how Yosemite Falls braids the water as it leaps from rock to rock. You will also be rewarded with spectacular views of Yosemite Valley. Bring water, and be sure to wear a hat and comfortable walking shoes or boots. This trail may be closed in winter. For your safety, it is recommended that this hike be completed before dark.

El Capitan

El Capitan, which literally translates to “The Captain” is a mountain climb meant for the adventurous of heart and seasoned climbers. It is a mammoth rock formation situated in the Yosemite Valley. If you are not a climber, don’t lose heart, another way to see the El Capitan is by hiking and following the trail along the valley. Visitors travel from far and wide to visit this breathtaking natural landmark and experience the thrill of nature’s beauty.

Sentinel/Cook's Meadow Loop

The Sentinel and Cook's Meadow Loop is believed to be one of the most straightforward and simple of all the trails in Yosemite National Park. The trail passes through several meadows and is absolutely stunning during spring and summer with flowers blooming and greenery all over. It also gives an epic view of the Yosemite Falls and the Half Dome and is an awe inspiring trip for anyone.

Yosemite Valley Loop Trail

Walk the valley without having to climb. This enjoyable loop has two parts: the full loop, which is 13 miles long, and the half loop, which is 6.5 miles long. Start at the Valley Visitor Center and pick up a detailed description of the route. Start in either direction, and you will find yourself discovering everything from the Merced River to a variety of fabulous viewpoints. But do not hesitate to deviate from the description. Finding your own adventures is part of the fun. Wear a hat and comfortable shoes, and bring water. Call ahead for hours.
