If you go to Yosemite things to do are in abundance. However, there are a few things that should be at the top of your list. The top things you’ll want to do the next time you’re in Yosemite are:


No trip to Yosemite would be complete without taking a hiking trip. There are hiking trails suitable for everyone, regardless of their experience. However, do research on the hikes because you don’t want to do something too challenging when you don’t have a lot of experience.

Some of the best hiking trails in Yosemite include the Valley Floor Loop and Elizabeth Lake. Others include the Mono Meadow Trail and the Half Dome Hike. Let’s not forget about Cloud’s Rest. When you’re in Yosemite, you’ll never be too far away from a trail and there is no way you’ll explore all of them in a single visit or even a week-long visit.

Are you a fan of gorgeous views that’ll take your breath away because if you are, then head over to Glacier Point. It’s one of the best lookouts in the park and you’ll be treated to panoramic views that nothing else can compare to. When you’re at the Point, you’ll be able to spot famous landmarks such as Half Dome, Yosemite Falls and views of the Valley.

One of the best things about Glacier Point is you can reach it via car, but you can also hike to the area. If you’re travelling with kids or someone who doesn’t enjoy hiking, then you’ll love having the ability to drive up to the Point. Whether you drive or hike, just make sure you go to Glacier Point.

This is where you’ll have the chance to view Sequoia trees, which are some of the most famous trees in the United States, as they are very large and visible from various areas of the park. Make sure you check out Fallen Monarch, which is a huge tree that fell over a hundred years ago. While there, check out Grizzly Giant, which has been around for over 1,000 years.

Those are the top Yosemite things to do. There are a lot of other stuff you can do, but those are definitely among the best. All you have to do now is book a trip to Yosemite and spend a few days there, and do as much as you do. Trust us, you will want to do everything when you’re there.
