These are the top activities Yosemite National Park has to offer.
Day hikes are designed based on your interest, ability, and challenge level you are looking for. Day trips can include stunning high-elevation meadows with endless wildflowers, to the top of some of Yosemite’s famous waterfalls, or to the summit of renowned peaks such as Cloud’s Rest and Half Dome. Lear about the history, ecology, and geology of the Yosemite area as well as wilderness ethics and Leave No Trace principles.

Family Adventure Programming in the Yosemite back-country. Whether you are in Yosemite for only a day or a week, your children are pre-teens and/or young adults; there is an adventure that will suit the entire family. Create lasting family memories.
