Yosemite National Park

Yosemite National Park

Welcome to Yosemite

Welcome to Yosemite! There are as many ways to experience this amazing place as there are granite rocks in the Sierra Nevada landscape. The grandeur of Yosemite brings us together with a common sense of awe. We are grateful to the legions of staff and volunteers who work together to ensure that the wonders of this park are preserved for future generations.

John Muir once wrote, “As long as I live, I’ll hear waterfalls and birds and winds sing. I’ll interpret the rocks, learn the language of flood, storm and the avalanche. I’ll acquaint myself with the glaciers and wild gardens, and get as near the heart of the world as I can.”

National parks were established to preserve what is truly special about America. They are places to be shared, places where everyone is welcome, places where we can reconnect with our American spirit. Whether you visit for a few hours or a few days, let Muir’s words bring you nearer to the heart of Yosemite!
