Insider advice on avoiding the crowds as you explore some of the most memorable natural wonders, from majestic Yosemite Falls to Kings Canyons towering sequoias. Where to find the absolute best campgrounds for each park and a rundown of the best hikes, from ranger-led interpretive walks to challenging backcountry overnights (with detailed, accurate park and trail maps). Insightful commentary on the history of the region and the parks' dazzling array of flora and fauna, including a fully illustrated nature guide to help you spot and identify condors, bobcats, wildflowers, and more. Opinionated reviews. No bland descriptions and lukewarm recommendations. Our expert writer is passionate about his parks-he tells it like it is in an engaging and helpful way. Exact prices listed for every establishment and activity-no other guides offer such detailed, candid reviews of historic lodges or family-friendly motels. We include the very best, but also emphasize moderately priced choices for real people. User-friendly features including star ratings and special icons to point readers to great finds, excellent values, insider tips, best bets for kids, special moments, and overrated experiences.
