An easy jaunt from the Bay Area in California, Yosemite offers a wonderful escape into the wilderness. Camp in one of the park's many campgrounds or stay in a walled tent! Hiking trails abound, either along the valley floor or meandering up to a mystic waterfall. Other summer adventures include fishing, horseback riding, rafting, biking, and climbing. In the winter, this accessible park is ideal for cross country skiing or snowshoeing.
