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.
You can find brief descriptions and mileages for trails by downloading this PDF [400 kb]. The trailhead information page has more information about each trailhead.
Additionally, below are links to all of the US Geological Survey 7.5-minute topographic maps that cover Yosemite National Park. Please note that some of these maps are several years old and some information on them may be out of date. Each PDF file is about 10 MB.
