Top 5 Must-See Attractions in Yosemite | National Geographic

By placing Yosemite Valley and Mariposa Grove under federal protection in 1864, Abraham Lincoln paved the way for what would later become California’s Yosemite National Park. See the tallest waterfall in North America, massive sequoia trees in Mariposa Grove, and endless wildlife throughout the park. From mountainous vistas to valleys of wildflowers, it is clear why this sprawling wilderness has awed and inspired the likes of John Muir and Ansel Adams.

    These attractions are at least an hours drive from the valley floor. Place is huge and some trailheads might be miles away from lodging. Speed limit is 10 or 15 mph so somewhere 20 miles away can take 2 hrs.

    My national parks pass was the best Christmas present I’ve ever bought myself. I hike Yosemite at least once a month. My happy place.
    Best bet is to take a Friday off and spend the day hiking. Easy parking, less crowds.
