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, trails, 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.

check mapsWILDFIRE NOTE: Two thirds of the Plumas National Forest has burnt in recent years with huge and destructive wildland fires. Some areas are closed, due to fire damage. Expect debris in roadways, detours, bleak scenery and even dead trees falling.

The 2020 #BearFire #NorthComplex and the 2021 #DixieFire destroyed historic buildings, fire lookouts, old cabins, residential houses, small towns and rural communities; plus old growth forests and unimaginable numbers of wildlife. Many roads, trails and campgrounds are closed to the public; while reforestation may take many decades, if not a century.

backpacking & campground camping –

This spectacular mountain setting is quite different from the rest of the Sequoia National Park. Backpackers can arrive late and sleep at the walk-in camps of Cold Springs Campground.

Access to high elevation trailheads; alpine lakes and Golden Trout Wilderness Area. Day hikes, horseback rides, fishing, mountaineering routes are plentiful.

However, bears and marmots are a problem here. Store food in the steel bear boxes provided. Marmots will eat radiator hoses and chew wiring inside your vehicle. Bring a roll of chicken wire to wrap your automobile, if you plan to leave it unattended for any amount of time.

Additionally, evening ranger programs are presented in summer months.
