Are you looking for fun things to do in Yosemite in July?
July is an extremely popular month to explore Yosemite National Park, given the confluence of warm, sunny weather and vacation schedules. While you’ll have plenty of company around the most sought-after sights, you’ll also be able to access most parts of the park, now that the high-country snow has mostly retreated.
Here are three fine things to do in Yosemite in July during your stay with Scenic Wonders!
1. Stargazing in Yosemite Valley
As splendorous as Yosemite’s mountains and rivers are during the day, the park doesn’t turn off the amazement factor once the sun sets. Throughout July you can attend the “Starry Skies Over Yosemite Valley” interpretive program and explore the rich wilderness of stars and planets arcing over the Sierra. (Visit the Yosemite Guide for current schedules)
Get acquainted with the Summer Triangle, Scorpius, and other hallmarks of the July firmament!
2. Enjoy the Spectacular Vistas from Glacier Point
Glacier Point Road—an easy drive from the Scenic Wonders neighborhood in Yosemite West—has been open since May; now’s the time to take it to its breathtaking conclusion. Glacier Point is guaranteed to be a highlight of your Yosemite visit: It will put the countryside into perspective like few other places in the park.
From several thousand feet above Yosemite Valley, you can gaze down at its famous sights—from Half Dome to Yosemite Falls—from a beautiful rocky vantage. There are also numerous trails available along Glacier Point Road worth exploring.
3. See the Awe-inspiring Waterfalls
Yosemite’s famous waterfalls tend to reach their peak flow in late spring, but July usually isn’t too late to appreciate some decent volume. Don’t miss the fabulous display of these three–Yosemite Falls, Bridalveil, Nevada–and all the other outstanding cataracts streaming from mountain heights. What better way to spend a hot afternoon than gazing at the cool mist of a big waterfall?
Yosemite in July is prime time: Get out there and soak up the grandeur!
