Overview Yosemite National Park Map #206

 

Central Sierra Nevada Mountains

2-sided, full color, waterproof maps

Yosemite is the most visited National Park in all of California, which is why NatGeo makes 5 maps for this region – so we can all spread out a little.

The main Yosemite Valley is the busy region, so try to avoid it during summer if at all possible. Tuolumne Meadows and Tioga Pass on Hwy 120 is considered the high country and has numerous trailheads leading to peaks, domes, viewpoints, waterfalls, alpine lakes, and the famous wilderness w/ High Sierra Camps (HSC). The paved route (SR 120) closes annually for winter snow (more than half the year), so reservations are required if planning an overnight stay.
