Sightseeing in Yosemite Valley is a fun activity.

Visiting some of the places of interest include:

Lower Yosemite Fall 

Lower Yosemite Fall is an easy 30-minute loop trail starting from shuttle stop #6. (Yosemite Falls will be dry until rain and snow return.) This hike features educational exhibits and a picnic area, and is accessible to the mobility impaired.

Bridalveil Fall

Bridalveil Fall is a year-round waterfall that can be visited on your way into or out of the Valley. Winds, swirling about the cliff, blow the wispy water into a delicate free-fall.

El Capitan

El Capitan is a massive granite monolith that stands 3,593 feet from base to summit. From spring to fall, climbers come from all over the globe to scale El Capitan. Please stay on foot paths to avoid damaging delicate meadows.

Half Dome

Half Dome dominates most views in Yosemite Valley. Stunning views of Half Dome are provided from Cook’s Meadow, Sentinel Bridge and Glacier Point.

Happy Isles

Happy Isles is easily reached by the free shuttle bus at stop #16. Cross the footbridges onto the Isles or wander through outdoor exhibits detailing Yosemite’s geologic story.

Tunnel View

Tunnel View provides breathtaking views of El Capitan, Bridalveil Fall and Half Dome. It is particularly spectacular at sunset or after the clearing of a storm.

Sightseeing in Yosemite Valley is easy. The famous landmarks are easily seen and recognized from a distance!
