Yosemite Hiking Trails
Yosemite National Park is justifiably one of America’s most popular national parks, and one reason is that it has hundreds of miles of hiking trails. With so much terrain, it can be confusing to know how and where to focus your energy to make the most of your time in Yosemite. Yosemite’s backcountry is a wonderland of towering granite cliffs, plunging waterfalls, pristine alpine meadows, river and lakes, wildlife, and more. It’s a world worth exploring. Plus the farther you get away from the roads and trailheads, the fewer crowds you’ll see, which in Yosemite, is a welcome respite!
