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.

Ansel Adams Map
Ansel Adams Wilderness, part of Inyo NF and Sierra NF

This High Sierra terrain spans some of the most majestic areas of the Sierra Nevada – the youngest mountain range in the U.S. This wilderness is bordered by National Parks, National Forests, and other Wilderness Areas – all the way around it. Kaiser Wilderness and Lake Edison inside Sierra NF on the west, Yosemite National Park on the north, Inyo NF on the east side, and John Muir Wilderness on the south end. Wow!

This 230,300 acre, high elevation wilderness was formerly the Minarets Wilderness, renamed in 1984 to honor the pioneering landscape photographer, Ansel Adams. Known for spectacular alpine scenery, elevations range from 7,000 to 14,000 feet. Rugged granite peaks and passes, with alpine lakes, includes high country east of the Sierra crest. Pacific Crest Trail and John Muir Trail cross this High Sierra Wilderness region.

This map is available at Ranger Stations.

Perfect for packing and hiking references, fishing lakes, creeks, high altitude camp sites, horse packing routes, or extended backpacking adventures. Map Scale = 1″ to mile; Printed on waterproof plastic paper. Updated in 2011. ISBN# 9781593515188
