The Yosemite Wilderness has over 750 miles of trail. As part of the wilderness experience, a good planning process will enhance both your understanding of the park and your hike, while increasing your enjoyment and safety. Therefore, park rangers will not plan a wilderness trip for you, but will only provide general guidance; you must plan your own trip.
