Visiting Yosemite

Yosemite Valley is only 24 miles away.

Yosemite National Park is 26 miles away which takes about an hour to drive. Park entrance fees are $33 per car for 3 consecutive days. Reservations are required due to limited park entrance. Doing a loop around Yosemite Valley will give you views of all the main attractions. Hop out and explore with the many walking paths and hikes throughout the park.
