Overview

Virtually every single trail in Yosemite National Park is described in this classic guidebook, together with the scenery and natural history found along each trail. View the soaring granite cliffs and waterfalls of Yosemite Valley, or take in the breathtaking vista from Glacier Point. Explore the impressive groves of giant sequoias and hike the spectacular, glacier-carved backcountry. The major trails leading into the park are also described in equal detail—trails in the Emigrant, Hoover, and Ansel Adams wildernesses. Also included is the most up-to-date, topographic map available of Yosemite and vicinity, showing over 1000 miles of trails, all of them personally hiked by the author or his assistant.

Editorial Reviews

If you think that you know Yosemite National Park, think again. This awesome preserve covers almost 1,200 square miles, nearly 90 percent of which is wilderness preserve. There is no better way to gain familiarity with this national treasure than to hike it; and there is no better Yosemite hiking aid than Jeffrey Schafer's trustworthy guide, which has been in print for nearly 30 years. Now updated and completely reorganized, Yosemite National Park exhibits a refreshing new look and new photographs. The 300-plus-page guide features 100 trips and side trips, ranging from short jaunts to week-long expeditions, and includes a fold-out topographic map. We think it's a backpack essential.
