What’s your dream?
Is it to trek to Half Dome on a warm summer’s day, and summit with the majesty of Yosemite Valley spread out below you? Or maybe it’s to go rafting down the Merced. Perhaps seeing the sights from a distance is perfectly fine with you. Maybe a day hiking and spotting waterfalls in late spring and early summer is just your speed.
As early explorers will tell you, whatever your passion, the first step to discovering Yosemite Mariposa County is with an accurate, reliable map. Your Yosemite National Park map can vary from a good, old fashioned analogue map – and when you’re traveling throughout the park, that’s exactly what we recommend, because GPS and cell reception can be spotty at times – to an interactive map for when you’re in the dreaming and planning stage. Lucky for you, our variety of maps are suited for nearly every interest.
Interactive Map for Planning Your Yosemite Trip
Featuring activity tabs along its left side, the map allows you to search your own way. Select one activity or click multiple buttons to layer attractions on top of each other. This will help you to visualize exactly how close you’ll be to your favorite new pizza place or B&B when you’re visiting Yosemite Mariposa County.
Looking for a place to stay? Start with our “Places to Stay” tab to see find accommodations near a specific point of interest. Then, click the “Dining” tab while the “Places to Stay” tab is highlighted for a special treat. This will layer the top dining options over the list of hotels, B&Bs and more to show you the proximity of each other. Click as many tabs as you want at once to see the whole range of options in the region.
There are also tabs for attractions, hiking, biking, watersports, fishing and winter activities. So, whether you’re looking to take a wintertime sleigh ride, grab a burger or hike Half Dome, you’ll be able to plan your next Yosemite trip from the comfort of home.

If I had a dollar for every time I’ve heard someone say, “I want to go skydiving.” I bet I’d have a hundred dollars (probably more), and every time my reply would be short and certain, “Not me!” and I meant it. I couldn’t imagine having the courage to step out of a ‘perfectly good airplane’ and tumble to earth, with-or-without someone strapped very tightly to my back.
Thankfully the physical impact left behind is incredibly minimal within Yosemite National Park’s boundary. Tourists can enjoy all the icons they have been dreaming to see, and most will not even be aware the event took place as they take in the famous jaw-dropping scenery.
There’s no better way to cap off the end of the year than to get away to Yosemite Mariposa County for the holidays this year.
