    Yosemite Mountain Sugar Pine Railroad

    Yosemite visitors typically travel by car or by foot, but it’s way cooler to ride in a vintage narrow-gauge steam train. The Yosemite Mountain Sugar Pine Railroad, just three miles beyond the park’s 南入口 in 鱼营, brings to life memories of long-gone logging camps with its narrow-gauge steam train “The Logger.” Two beautifully restored steam locomotives—one built in 1913 and the other in 1928—pull rail cars with tree-carved bench seats along four miles of track in Sierra National Forest’s scenic woodlands. The narrated ride lasts about an hour and often includes a stop in the forest so riders can stroll and take photos. Keep on the lookout, though. 在温暖的夏日夜晚, “masked bandits” on horseback stage mock train holdups, 他们的六支枪在燃烧.

    Yosemite Ziplines and Adventure Ranch

    In 蝴蝶百合’s pastoral, oak-covered hills, about 40 miles from Yosemite’s Arch Rock/Highway 140 entrance, Yosemite Ziplines and Adventure Ranch serves up 30-mile-per-hour thrills. Book a spot on the two-hour tour, which includes a ride in a beefed-up Polaris Ranger to the top of the zipline course, followed by a soaring descent on six separate lines. First-timers have nothing to fear; you’re provided with safety gear and taught how to zip by experienced guides. Anyone of any age can go zipping as long as they weigh between 60 and 250 pounds. If you’re hankering for a triceps workout, spend an hour climbing around on the ropes course.


    Only a half-mile from Yosemite’s 大橡树公寓入口 在120号公路上, 拉什溪小屋’s 143 woodsy-chic rooms offer a peaceful respite after a day of adventuring in the park. 提出的 餐厅和酒馆 serve mountain-style comfort food—burgers, steaks, and seafood—plus a wealth of vegetarian options.
