Good Yosemite Hikes

I am off to Yosemite in October for a couple of days, and I am just wondering what some good hikes would be? We don't really want to pack walking boots, so just going to be in trainers. So something best for beginners, but ideally with some good views. We are staying in Half Dome Village

Hi

Open the full TA website, not the app. Look at the Top Questions on the right. Read Trip Reports & former TripLists. Read about Yosemite Valley & Glacier Point Road. Look at the maps.

Also use the NPS website for planning hikes and www.YosemiteHikes.com

Ones to consider....

... Mist Trail. In the Valley to Vernal and possibly on to Nevada Fall. Most popular hike in the Park.

... Sentinel Dome from Glacier Point Road. Excellent views

... Mariposa Grove (I assume you're stopping on your way in or out of the Park)
