From deep valleys encircled by dramatic peaks, gushing waterfalls feeding into lush meadows, and ancient giant sequoia forests, Yosemite National Park has many enchantments to excite visitors. For family-friendly adventures, there are a lot of easy-going hiking trails, flat bike routes, and many pit stops along the way. Here are six adventures to get you going. For a stroller-friendly short circuit with a magnificent viewpoint, try Glacier Point trail. If biking is more your family’s thing, the Yosemite Valley Bike Loop adventure will take you around the main sights on the valley floor in around 2 hours.
