So me and my brother will be visiting Yosemite for our first times on August 15th for 4 days and will be hiking 3 of the days. We are staying in coursegold at a casino which according to google maps is 55 miles and 1 hour 30 minutes away from Yosemite Valley.
We want to arrive around 7 to avoid traffic and find good parking. I was told to park at Yosemite Valley Lodge (the hotel) and take the shuttle around to the trailheads.
Me and my brother could probably do the moderate hikes but only a strenous hike if its only a couple of miles. I dont think we want to hike for more than 7 hours or so and hope to end around 2 or so.
So my question is if anyone has some advice to help me plan out the trails. I did as much research online as I could but only got a rough outline and I dont really know which trails lead into which ones.
So what are your favorite trails from Yosemite Valley? Also we could stop at Wowana if anyone has good experience there.
