The Glory of Yosemite National Park

Though the pristine environment of Yosemite National Park is passionately protected—about 95% of Yosemite National Park is designated wilderness—the park offers a host of year-round conveniences and guest services so that visitors can make the most of their experience while still observing strict respect for a federally protected environment that is both rugged and unique.

Experience Yosemite National Park in All Its Splendor

The park's major sites can be viewed by car, by bike, on foot, downstream…and even in a wheelchair, as some trails and facilities are handicapped accessible. Yosemite National Park includes almost 1,200 square miles of scenic wild lands set aside in 1890 to preserve a portion of the central Sierra Nevada stretching along California. The park ranges from 2,000 feet above sea level to more than 13,000 feet and has several major attractions, including:

  • Alpine wilderness
  • Three groves of Giant Sequoias
  • Glacially carved Yosemite Valley
  • Impressive waterfalls, cliffs and unusual rock formations
