Yosemite National Park is a wonderful and beautiful place with towering trees, thundering waterfalls and massive granite formations. Set aside as a national park in 1890, Yosemite is a place visited by almost four million visitors each year. Yosemite's goal is to provide the highest level of accessibility to our visitors as possible. Each year has shown marked improvements in both physical and programmatic accessibility at Yosemite.
For more information, download the park's accessibility guide [873 kb PDF], which describes access to areas, facilities, and services for people with disabilities. In addition, our Deaf Services Program is dedicated to connecting the Deaf community to everything Yosemite has to offer. Finally, we have a visual guide to visiting Yosemite Valley for people with aphasia [1.5 MB PDF].
