Day Hikes in Yosemite
Day hikes range from flat walks to robust climbs, with distances from the valley of under one mile (to Bridalveil Fall, a flat easy walk) up to 17 miles (to Half-Dome, very strenuous permits are required and overnight camping permits are encouraged). Visitors will see waterfalls, especially strong in the spring, glacial ravines, panoramic views, forests and meadows.
You can also hike above the valley floor south in Wawona, where you will see covered bridges, open pine forest, and the Giant Sequoias Grove. Shuttle bus service is available for tired trekkers to return to Wawona from the Grove. From the nortern part of the park, you can visit Soda Springs, Cathedral Lakes and follow the John Muir Trail. Longer hikes lead to Tioga Pass and the High Sierra Camp.
