Listen to live music, shop at a farmers market, and play a round of golf. Then stop by the visitor center for park entry passes and info about Yosemite.
Yosemite has many wild waterfalls, rivers and streams, causing visitors who are unprepared and don't heed the posted warning signs to get into trouble.
In late spring and early summer, when melting snow from Sierra Nevada peaks thunders down into the valleys below, it's easy to imagine how millennia of erosion has shaped the landscape of the park today.
Yosemite’s traffic problem could be solved by using a combination of the park’s public transit system, and a walking/cycling trail system to get around.
Drones, commonly used for photography, are potentially threatening to wildlife including falcons and bighorn sheep.
New regulations aim to make Yosemite National Park’s famous hike up to Half Dome safer by using permits to limit the number of people allowed on the hike per day.
Bodie is a ghost town in the Sierra Nevada mountains northeast of Yosemite. Today Bodie is a State Historical Park and landmark open to visitors.
Parks that usually charge an entrance fee will be free on several days during the year. Check our list of dates for this year.
