Virtual Guidebook to Yosemite and the Central Sierra Nevada
North Rim of Yosemite Valley
Yosemite National Park California


No road accesses the north rim of Yosemite Valley, and only two trails climb up to it. But a series of trails parallel it, with spurs out to some notable viewpoints.

West of Yosemite Falls a trail leads to Eagle Peak, the highest of the Three Brothers. A short hike east of the falls is Yosemite Point.
