Because private cars are restricted from the eastern margin of Yosemite Valley, this nearly level, point-to-point route offers serenity, along with sublime vistas of Half Dome and other great walls. Picnic spots abound. Hikers can take time out to explore Indian Caves, Mirror Meadow, Happy Isles, and some Yosemite history.
