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

New, large, comprehensive, three-dimensional trail-information panels provide this one-stop orientation for visitors. Located on the busy pedestrian area in front of the Yosemite Valley Visitor Center, these easy-to-read panels provide quick answers to the most common day-trip questions, including the mileage and difficulty of popular trails, 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 can experience shorter lines at the Visitor Center and more time exploring the beautiful Valley.

Your support allows visitors to have a more enjoyable trip to the park.
