During our weekend visit we enjoyed a few beginner hiking trails (both guided) and went horseback riding. Two of the things that we really enjoyed seeing were BridalViel Falls and El Capitan, a steep granite formation. The scenery throughout this national park is breathtaking, so make sure you bring along a camera! We also recommend visiting the Yosemite Museum so that you can learn about the history of the park and the surrounding area.
