Yosemite Park Maps
Since Yosemite National Park is one of the most popular destinations inside California, several cartographers make overview maps and hiking maps for this busy park. Much of the area is covered in snow half the year and roads are closed annually. So know before you go and call the rangers. Double check campgrounds, road conditions and weather, all prior to trip departure.
Tom Harrison is has an extensive list of trail maps which include the low elevations of Yosemite Valley, as well as the higher elevation backcountry. Waterproof trail maps, topographic w/ camps, canyons, climbs, creeks, lakes, peaks, all terrain.
National Geographic also makes a series of colorful Yosemite maps, which span the whole park from west to east. Waterproof, tear-resistant, folded, two-sided maps.
Wilderness Press makes a couple too!
