First protected in 1864, Yosemite National Park is best known for its waterfalls, but within its nearly 1,200 square miles, you can find deep valleys, grand meadows, ancient giant sequoias, a vast wilderness area, and much more. 

What is there to do in Yosemite? This common question is a difficult one to answer... because there are so many answers.

The southern entrance to the park is about a 30-minute drive from Mammoth Lakes and the valley floor is about a 1.5 hour drive.
