Hike atop legendary giant El Capitan. Climb two different ways to the summit of Half Dome. Ski or snowshoe through a winter wonderland to rustic and free backcountry cabins. These journeys and dozens more come alive in “Yosemite Adventures: 50 Spectacular Hikes, Climbs and Winter Treks.”
Whether you want to walk back in time among ancient giant sequoias, backpack beside thundering waterfalls or test your climbing skills on glacier-carved granite, “Yosemite Adventures” suggests trips for every season and level of ability.
Five categories of activities each include outings suitable for those new to outdoors adventure and advanced choices for the experienced. With a great selection in Yosemite Valley and Tuolumne Meadows, the guide also describes little-known gems near Hetch Hetchy, Wawona and throughout the park.
Discover pristine Elizabeth Lake just a short walk from the road. Explore the incomparable Grand Canyon of the Tuolumne River on a overnight odyssey.
