Whether you’re here for a day or a month, a map is essential to getting around in Yosemite National Park. Yes, there are great smartphone apps and reliable GPS units out there, but we all know technology can fail at the worst times, which makes a backup map a crucial addition to your backpack. Pick up weatherproofed/laminated maps at your local outdoors store or print out PDF maps from our Yosemite Maps page.
