What was it like to visit Yosemite more than 100 years ago? Find out on this history-themed day in the park!
Long before automobiles were formally allowed in Yosemite, in 1913, visitors used stage coaches to visit the park and see the famous sights. During this full-day guided adventure, you’ll travel back in time to discover the fascinating history behind the park’s early stage coach roads. As you explore western Yosemite Valley with an expert naturalist guide, you’ll step inside the stories of Chinese immigrants who helped build the roads, of the tourists who traveled from near and far to see Yosemite’s renowned landscape, and of the stage coach drivers who had to navigate the winding, steep and, sometimes, risky routes.
Included with your registration:
- One full day of guided hiking and learning in Yosemite Valley’s west end (Friday, March 29, 9 am through 4 pm).
- Park entry (as needed).
- Camping included, if needed; limited sites are shared among all the participants (reservation arrives Thursday, March 28, and departs Saturday, March 30) at Upper Pines Campground in Yosemite Valley. We cannot adjust these dates.
