Suppose you’re passionate about hiking. Yosemite Valley day hikes offer a selection of trails ranging from easy to strenuous, so there is something to suit everyone. Smith Peak is a moderate to strenuous hike that takes an average of 6-8 hours but promises spectacular views of the Hetch Hetchy area. Be sure to pack your boots because over 750 miles of trails are just waiting to be explored in Yosemite National Park.
Rafting along the Merced River is a must if you visit Yosemite during summer. Rent a raft or bring your own and enjoy the scenery as you coast down the river. Why not Kayak along the calm waters of Tenaya Lake, possibly the most beautiful lake in Yosemite?
If you've booked for the winter months, you'll have the chance to explore the vast landscape with cross-country skiing and snowshoeing. With over 90 miles of trails and runs, you can enjoy hours of endless fun on the slopes of Yosemite. Badger Pass is the most popular spot and is perfect for skiers of all abilities.
When the sun sets, gaze up at the night sky. Miles away from city lights, you'll see the stars as you've never seen them before. So remember to pack your binoculars and star chart.
