For my birthday year, I have plans for a variety of multiday hikes and my copy of this book is full of bookmarks! It is well organized, has elevation graphs (helpful for me since I am looking for higher elevation hikes this year). Maps are okay, but sometimes I have to refer to to other sources to find the trails. The hiking descriptions are just right, not too detailed and enough to enlighten me as to how well a hike fits my desires.

This is an indispensible guidebook for any hiker who loves Yosemite. I use it almost daily during hiking season and it helps in selecting hikes, planning them, reaching the trailhead and gauging whether a hike will be worthwhile. Each hike contains an accurate, though brief, description of the rigors of each trek. Occasionally I quibble with the authors ranking of a given hike, but usually they are on the mark.
A few cautionary notes: there are no detailed maps in the book, except general maps which introduce the hiker to each specific place. Te map for the John Muir trail, for example, is very basic. Don't expect detailed maps for each hike because there are none. The descriptions of how to reach each trailhead are excellent, unless you have little experience with Yosemite.
My favorite part of the book is that the Touloume Meadows High Country area is not neglected. Swedo has various categories and list the hikes they think are best suited to be placed in every league and the valley floor is not the only area of the park that is stressed .If you spend any time hiking in Yosemite, this book is essential!

This book is very easy to navigate through & the author gives great topgraphical maps for each hike section. I've been using this book to plan my trip this year & it will let you know what to expect on the terrain mile by mile. Each trail has a difficulty rating, appx. travel time, seasons best to hike, GPS compatible, and some VERY basic info on contacting the park.

I would recommend buying a complete map to Yosemite which will help to plan your entire trip. I've recently purchased National Geographic Destination Map & it will give you all the additional info you need. It gives much more info on campgrounds, how/where to purchase permits for the backcountry, driving distances within the park & other accomodations.

This is a straightforward guide to the trails in Yosemite that does the job clearly and informatively, and at a good price. The guide is well laid out, organized by trailhead area. Each hike has all the necessary information (length, altitude gain, best time of year etc) and an elevation profile, followed by a brief description that gives a feel for the area and a list of way-points. Each trail gets about two pages of information, and the book is small enough to carry along without minding the weight. Overall this is a very good guide - nothing flashy but its very well put together, well thought out and a good price.

I have used the Falcon Guides for other places as well. This one did not disappoint. Great indexing, maps, descriptions and recommendations. Highly recommended!
This book is just what you need when visiting Yosemite National Park if you do any hiking at all. It is thorough, well written, acurate, and easy to use.
