Overview

The electrifying vistas of the Yosemite Valley and neighboring Sequoia and Kings Canyon national parks continue to exert a magnetic attraction for America's nature lovers. Giant sequoia groves, thundering cascades, and epic climbs--it's all here, and this guide takes travelers right to the heart of the best trails, experiences, and places to stay.

-EXPANDED COVERAGE: Fully updated coverage of the parks' sites and lodgings along with new dining, lodging, and shopping reviews for the nearby gateway towns ensure that travelers receive the most up-to-date information on Yosemite and Sequoia/Kings Canyon National Parks.

-ILLUSTRATED FEATURES: Dazzling full-color photographs illustrate the parks' beauty and make the guide a memorable keepsake. Clear, easy-to-read maps show sites, topography, and trailheads.
