Yosemite Hikes

There are over 800 miles of Yosemite hikes in the park, and there's something for everyone. So many visitors only take the paved short hikes, but there are a bunch of great trail hikes that aren't necessarily hard or long. But of course, there are the longer and tougher hikes too.  Yosemite was the favorite stomping ground for John Muir, father of the modern-day outdoors movement. He would bring contemporaries like Emerson and Teddy Roosevelt here to get them to fall in love with the outdoors. It's easy to do, so please get out of your car, get off the paved walkways, and experience a hike.
