Walking through Yosemite Valley, California

Although you are never that far from a car park or a road, Yosemite Valley can be a stunning and secluded spot for a stroll. Meandering alongside the lovely Merced River, a series of trails take you past some renowned beauty spots, such as Yosemite Falls and El Capitan Meadow.  Occasionally, you might run into a coach load of tourists or even a wedding, but there are plenty of quiet corners. The valley stretches far enough for you to walk all day, but you'll need to carry a fair of bit of water.  If you run out of steam, you may be able to catch a free shuttle bus back towards Yosemite Village and most of the car parks.
