About this book
This amazingly diverse wonderland of deep ice-sculptured canyons, polished granite domes, rolling oak woodlands, stately forests, and tuneful streams offers some of the best hiking around. Virtually all the hikes in this book are readily accessible from major arterials, and there are explicit trailhead directions for each hike. The hikes in 100 Hikes in Yosemite National Park are divided into eight geographical regions. The regions approximate a counterclockwise loop, starting from the southeast and finishing in the southwest. With extensive facts about plants, wildlife, and geological features as well as local history, each hike in this guidebook is loaded with outdoor entertainment and information.
The trailhead for the Glacier Canyon Trail is at a turnout along the road near the inlet of Tioga Lake (11.9 mi; UTM 018990). The western trailhead for the Mono Pass Trail is at Dana Meadows (13.9 mi; UTM 011959).
