More Info The south gate of beautiful Yosemite National Park is near the resort. Here pre-Pleistocene glaciers changed rolling hills and meandering streams into the colossal landscape of today. Much of the mountain region is easily accessible to hikers and motorists using the 196 miles of primary roads and more than 800 miles of trails.There are many other ways you can see the splendor of Yosemite: half-hour to half-day nature walks are conducted by naturalists year-round, 7-day guided hiking trips, 4- and 6-day saddle trips, and a 2-hour tour of the valley from an open tram. You won’t want to miss the fun of driving your vehicle through the 232-foot California tree in the Mariposa Sequoia Grove in the extreme southern end of the park.Sightseers will love the Yosemite Falls, especially in May and June when the winter snows are melting and the falls are at their fullest. With a height equal to nine Niagara’s, the Upper Yosemite Fall drops 1,430 feet in one fall. Immediately below, the Lower Yosemite Fall has a modest drop of 320 feet.
