Tours generally can be booked at any of the activity desks throughout the park, or ahead of time online. If your trip spans busy months, reservations are necessary. Departing from Shuttle Stop #8 under Yosemite Lodge at the Falls port cochere, a one way ticket offers the attractive option of hiking back. Soak in the luxurious views along the Panorama or Four Mile Trails on one of Yosemite’s easiest summer hikes.
Get out the map to plan a route that fits ability and schedule. Available at the Curry Village Mountain Shop, the Yosemite Village Sport Shop, and the Glacier Point Store, a printed version of this incredible land is a generous help for the hike back, as well as a reminder of journeys completed. And, since this most inspirational park often draws visitors back multiple times, any map investments are bound to return their worth on future visits.
