This national park offers something for everyone. Take it easy by staying in Yosemite Valley and meandering along mellow trails with great views of Yosemite Falls and El Capitan. Get into the backcountry with a hike to Vernal Falls or up the backside of Half Dome. Or let the guides do the work on a horseback ride or whitewater rafting adventure.
