Things to Do at Yosemite National Park

All kinds of things to do around Yosemite: hiking, biking, tours, drives

Mariposa Grove
This is where the big trees are, about 500 mature giant sequoias to be exact. It's an easy hike around them in summer, but during winter, you'll have to walk, snowshoe, or ski up the road to get in. In summer, you can also take a guided tram tour to Mariposa Grove from the valley.

Easy Walks and Short Hikes in Yosemite Valley
Any of these easy walks and short hikes in Yosemite Valley will take you to see something special - and some are quite flat.

Rock Climbing
At one of the world's finest mountaineering schools.

Skiing at Badger Pass
Skiing is one of the popular winter Yosemite activities. Fun for the whole family!

Hite Cove Trail
It's outside the park boundaries, but because the Hite Cove Trail is one of the best wildflower walks anywhere, we thought you should know about it. Find out how to get there, get some trail tips and learn when the wildflowers are in bloom

Tioga Pass

Waterfalls in Yosemite
Depending on the season,  you can see a lot of waterfalls in Yosemite - and in spring, some of them are spectacular.


Yosemite Mountain Sugar Pine Railroad
Everybody seems to enjoy a ride on an old-fashioned steam train. This one runs through the forest, just a few miles outside the Yosemite west entrance on Hwy 41.

Yosemite Trails Pack Station
It might sound like a place you should visit before you start your trip, but actually, it's a great place to go on a horseback trail ride, enjoy a cowboy barbecue or take a winter sleigh ride. They're in Fish Camp, near the Western entrance to Yosemite.
