The park encompasses just under 748,000 acres of granite cliffs, groves of giant sequoias, waterfalls, streams, and diverse plant and animal life. Designated a national park in 1890, Yosemite National Park is the third oldest national park in the United States, though President Abraham Lincoln signed the Yosemite Grant in 1864, paving the way to a national park 26 years later.
Today, some 3-4 million visitors flock to the park each year. Yosemite has a lot to offer, including backpacking trips to see some of the back-country’s waterfalls, mountain meadows, hidden vistas, and choice fishing spots. Hikers will find a variety of day hikes based on interest, ability and level of difficulty. Horse trails are available to those who want to go on a guided tour or adventure out on their own. Unique to the park is the opportunity to step back through time by renting an original Model T or Model A Ford and driving around the park. Visitors can also enjoy Yosemite National Park by picnicking, birdwatching, biking, camping and fishing.
