How to Reach Yosemite National Park
Since there are no landing strips at the Park, you’ll have to land at one of the towns and either hire a car or avail of a shuttle service.
- By Shuttle: The Yosemite Area Regional Transportation System offers shuttle services from the towns of Merced, Mariposa, El Portal, Lee Vining and Mammoth Lakes.
- By Rail: Amtrak too has a train service to Yosemite from San Joaquins and Merced.
- By Car: You could always hire a car and drive to Yosemite National Park, using any of its four entrances; the park is connected to four State Routes. These routes however, are winding and quite mountainous, so let the road have your full attention.
- By Shuttle: The Park offers shuttle buses that are either free or charge a nominal fee and run to all the attractions. The Park has more than one shuttle service, so check with the stops before you board the bus.
- By Car: Driving around the Park in a rented car is one of the best ways to get around. It can get crowded though during the summer, so be prepared for some traffic.
- By Cycle: Yosemite National Park has designated bicycle paths for all those of you who would like to cycle your way through the Park. Bikes can be rented on a daily basis.
- On Foot: Walking trails are in place and are quite effective too when it comes to seeing the Park; the Park is most accessible through a network of walking trails.
