Yosemite National Park: Granite Mountains and Waterfalls in America’s Epic Wilderness

Be wowed by the majesty of nature in this celebrated national park, a rugged wilderness known for its impressive waterfalls, glaciers, granite cliffs, and groves of giant sequoia trees. Situated in the western Sierra Nevada mountains, Yosemite is one of America’s most popular national parks. It covers over 1,200 square miles, a wild and beautiful playground of mountains, lakes, sheer cliffs, deep forests, and crystal clear streams.

Most visitors start (and stay at) Yosemite Valley, entering through the famous Tunnel View. Yosemite’s iconic granite cliff El Capitan is the park’s most recognizable (and photographed) feature, along with the towering Bridalveil Falls. Those who adventure into the backcountry will find a tranquil wonderland of wildflower meadows, deep valleys, magnificent glaciers, and jagged mountain peaks.

Yosemite Village is home to numerous shops, restaurants, the Yosemite Museum, and the Ansel Adams black-and-white photography gallery. It’s the perfect place to start your journey into the park. Over 750 miles of hiking trails, guided tours, and ranger-led programs make it easy to explore Yosemite National Park, a cherished slice of the American wilderness.
