For well over a hundred years, Yosemite National Park has been a vacation destination for millions of visitors. Some come for gentle, quiet walks to view the spectacular mountains, lakes, and waterfalls. Others come for some of the most challenging climbs in the western United States. This book is the perfect companion for everyone visiting this national treasure. Author Matt Johanson has collected a series of hikes and climbs and winter treks with something for everyone from a short (less than a mile) easy one-hour walk to a 75-mile, very strenuous 6-to-8 day hike and everything in between. Every adventure lists distance, time, and difficulty along with information about where to park, highest point, best season to experience it, and whether or not permits are required. An overview tells you just what to expect along with lots of other information and tips. There are also glorious photographs and highly-detailed maps. Johanson lets the reader know what equipment is appropriate and even how much food and water one will need on each adventure. The photographs alone are worth the price of this book, but there is so much more for anyone considering a visit to the Yosemite area.

Chris Hayden been working at City Book Review since 2012, so that makes him the keeper of knowledge. He manages the office and book reviewers (all 200 of them!), which is no small feat. If you’re looking at the book reviews here, you’re seeing them because he sent the books out for review. Without him, this place would fall apart, because no one else in the office knows how to use the postage machine. Two words: job security.
