One Hundred Hikes in Yosemite

Overview map of Yosemite National Park

Virtually every single trail in Yosemite National Park is described in this guidebook, together with the scenery and natural history found along each trail. View the soaring granite cliffs and waterfalls of Yosemite Valley, or take in the breathtaking vista from Glacier Point. Explore the impressive groves of giant sequoias and hike the spectacular, glacier-carved backcountry.

The major trails leading into the park are also described in equal detail—trails in the Emigrant, Hoover and Minarets wildernesses.

Have you ever wondered why Yosemite Valley is so deep? How the giant sequoias acquired their present, spotty distribution? Why the vegetation changes with altitude? How Pothole Dome got its potholes? The answer to these questions and many others can be found here.
