Most visitors to Yosemite are in the park for a day trip, and need quick and easy access to popular day hikes or sightseeing information from the Valley.

New large, comprehensive three dimensional trail information panels provide this one-stop orientation for visitors. Located on the busy pedestrian mall in front of the Yosemite Valley Visitor Center, these large and easy-to-read panels provide quick answers to the most common day trip questions, including popular trails (length and difficulty), points of interest and safety information.

Park staff and volunteers are always happy to assist with additional questions but with FAQs answered through these new panels, visitors experience shorter lines at the Visitor Center and more time exploring the beautiful Valley.

Your support is put towards projects so all visitors may have a more enjoyable trip to the park.
