Established in 1890, Yosemite National Park embraces a spectacular tract of mountain-and-valley scenery in the Sierra Nevada. Yosemite Park's awe-inspiring landscape includes waterfalls, meadows, and forests with groves of giant sequoia trees.

Today, Yosemite National Park spans nearly 1,200 square miles.

Yosemite Information and Facts

Located in Central California's Sierra Nevada mountain range, Yosemite National Park encompasses an incredible 1,170 square miles of breathtaking natural splendor.   Ranging in altitude from 2,000 feet to more than 13,000 feet above sea level, it's hard to believe that Yosemite is just hours from bustling cities like San Francisco, Los Angeles and Reno. Though the pristine environment of Yosemite is passionately protected, the Park offers a host of year-round conveniences and guest services so that visitors can make the most of their experience while still observing a respect for the park.
