This world-famous valley is nature’s cathedral and showcase rolled into one. Words and pictures can never do it full justice. Bustling with tourists year-round, the park tries to limit cars on the roads by providing free shuttles while limiting parking spaces outside the main parking areas. You will save yourself a lot of hassles by taking the shuttle; you rarely have to wait more than a few minutes for the next bus. Before you leave, be sure to stop by Yosemite Village for a tour of the museum, the Ansel Adams gallery, and the Indian Village (behind the visitor center), which provides a glimpse of what Yosemite looked like in 1872. This trail guide contains descriptions of the following trails: Silver Strand Falls, Widows Tears, Tamarack Falls, Wildcat Falls, The Cascades, Ribbon Falls, El Capitan Falls, Sentinel Falls, Bridalveil Falls, Upper Yosemite Falls, Lower Yosemite Falls, Lehamite Falls, Snow Creek Falls, Tenaya Falls, Tanechka Falls, Royal Arch Cascade, and Staircase Falls.
