Restored trails allow access to Yosemite’s many wonders.

Trail Rehabilitation & Access

Whether you’re taking a stroll in a quiet forest, climbing through the spray beside a world-renowned waterfall or trekking over mountain passes, trails are the best way to experience Yosemite’s breathtaking landscape. With your support, crews keep the park’s 800-mile trail network in top condition through restoration projects that protect natural resources and provide safe access to stunning viewpoints, serene lakes, high peaks and more.
