Yosemite is an amazing nationally preserved park with more than a hundred lakes (some with beaches), numerous meadows great for hiking and nature watching, and a number of gigantic waterfalls. Since the nature is undisturbed, nature is allowed to flourish. In wooded areas, the trees grow to be gigantic and the entire park is engulfed in tremendous mountains.
There are over 800 total miles of hiking and bike trails. The hikes offer breathtaking scenery as they often end up near the gigantic waterfalls or on top of hills from which you can see forever into the distance. There are hikes and activities for everyone. People used to cities are able to stay closer to civilizations, while outdoor adventurers can backpack in nature for days.
Yosemite Valley is one of the more known place about Yosemite. Yosemite Valley is the home of nationally known spots like Half Dome, Bridalveil Falls, and the Mist Trail. While it seems that you will be in nature and wilderness, these places are always full of hikers and visitors.
Upper Gaylor Lake and the Tioga Pass Road are visitor favorite because it has a little bit for everyone: huge mountains, grassy fields, and lakes where people have been known to take a swim. There are many wooded forest-like areas and great hiking trails that lead all through the different landscapes of Yosemite.
Southern Yosemite is famous for the giant Sequoia trees that are often as wide as many people standing together, and seem to touch the skies with their tops. A famous grove in southern part of Yosemite is called the Mariposa Grove. Common attractions are the Grizzly Giant, the California Tunnel Tree, and the hiking trails surrounded by the Sequoias.
Glacier Point Road takes people up the heights, with many hikes off the Glacier Point Road. Many of the hikes lead to peaks of mountains from which people can see far into the distance in any direction. Many of the trails marked by "point" in the name lead to cliffs with views of Yosemite Valley. A great attraction is a road to the Sentinel Dome, which has a 360-degree view and as legend has it, the most revered tree.
If you are thinking of hiking and doing outdoor activities in the Bay Area or Northern California, take a look at our hiking groups, or consider leading some hikes. We are working on building many tools like carpool management to make the hiking experience more environmentally friendly. There are many other interesting features for hikers like the ability to track your hiking statistics.
