Yosemite National Park is located approximately 320 miles east of San Francisco, California.

The park covers an area of ??3,081 km² and extends through the eastern slopes of the Sierra Nevada mountain range (US). It is visited by over 3 million people every year, and most only go part of the Yosemite Valley. He was named a World Heritage Site in 1984 and is internationally recognized for its granite cliffs, waterfalls, clear rivers, forests of giant redwoods and great biological diversity (about 95% of the park area is called wilderness). It was the first park established by the federal government of the United States and through the work of people like John Muir was an important point in the development of the idea of ??national parks.

Yosemite is one of the largest and least fragmented habitatsSierra Nevada, and has a great diversity of plants and animals. The park has an average elevation of 600-4000 meters and contains five major vegetation zones: wooded area of ??oaks, low mountain greenery, high mountain vegetation, subalpine vegetation and alpine vegetation. Of the 7,000 species of plants from California, about 50% are found in the Sierra Nevada and more than 20% within Yosemite Park.

The geological formation of the area is granite rocks and remnants of older rock. About 10 million years ago, suffered an elevation Sierra Nevada and was then tilted to form the relatively gentle slopes of the western and eastern slopes steeper. The elevation accented pitch of rivers and streams, forming deep, narrow canyons. A million years ago, snow and ice accumulated, forming glaciers at the higher alpine meadows and moved down the valleys of therivers. The downward movement of the ice mass cut and sculpted the U-shaped valley that today attracts large numbers of visitors for its unique landscape.

It has over 1,300 miles of marked trails for which you can ride. There are 5 distinct sections for visitors:

        
  • Yosemite Valley
  •     
  • Wawona / Mariposa Grove / Glacier Point,
  •     
  • Tuolumne Meadows,
  •     
  • Hetch Hetchy,
  •     
  • Crane Flat / White Wolf.
