Day Hiking Yosemite National Park Glacier Point / Yosemite Valley / Tuolumne Meadows

We rated this book:


Yosemite National Park is one of the most popular tourist attractions in the country. And with good reason. One of the best ways to see this wondrous place is to hike the park. This handy little (five x seven inches) guide will help hikers make excellent choices about how to spend their time.

The book opens with a good map showing where the trails are. This is followed by a quick guide to the ninety trails covered in the book. The quick guide covers the distance in miles; degree of difficulty; whether or not it is year-round, dog-friendly, and kid-friendly; whether or not there are waterfalls, lakes, views, and giant sequoias; and more.

After an extensive introductory section with information on facilities, trail etiquette, and more, there are nine sections according to geographical regions with a complete write-up on each of the trails. These sections have a trail map, photographs of sights along the trail, how to get to the trailhead, and an excellent description of the hike.

The writing is lively and interesting to read. The size makes it easy to carry in a pocket or daypack. There are even fifteen bonus trails described at the end.
