Top 10 Hikes in Yosemite National Park

California’s famed Yosemite National Park sees millions of visitors annually. If you aren’t one of those, then it should absolutely be on your bucket list! With seemingly limitless outdoor activities under the shade of the giant sequoias, you’ll never be short on things to do!

In this post, we’re going to review our top 10 hikes in Yosemite National Park. We include hikes for every skill level and give you a good idea of what to expect so you can get the most out of your trip.

So, grab your gear, head on over to Travellers Autobarn for your fully-loaded campervan rental, and prepare for the trip of a lifetime!

Some of Yosemite’s best-known hikes are quite challenging, however, you don’t have to be an expert to appreciate the beauty of this park! While summer is arguably the best time to be at Yosemite, it is also the busiest, with 75% of its annual visitors coming during the summer and early fall months. So if you plan to be at Yosemite anytime from May to October, expect to have to plan for crowds, especially during the peak of summer.

Home to approximately 90 species of mammals, Yosemite is full of life in all corners of its land! While there is no guarantee you’ll run into bears (black and brown), mountain lions, or wolverines, they are in the park. It’s more likely that you’ll see deer, squirrels, or wild mice, but it is still incredibly important that you’re prepared should you see a large animal on your hikes.

As always, plan ahead. Check for safety advisories and pack the necessary gear and provisions. Give the wildlife space and take all the pictures you can safely get. A safe hike is a happy hike!
