Hi Everyone,

My wife and I are contemplating taking a midweek trip to Yosemite in the middle of may with our one year old daughter. I have been there before, but not for a long time.

My question is how much there is to do with a jogger stroller? I know a lot of the trails are probably innacessible with a jogger and there is no way I could use a backpack carrier instead. I live in San Diego and would hate to make the trip up and feel too limited. How much should we expect to see and do in the valley without having to go off roading with a stroller?

Also, I have always camped in the valley and this time we will be lodging it. Any recommendations in the 100-150$ range? Most likely we will be coming up the 41 from the south but if it makes sense, we would stay closer to the west entrance on the Merced river side.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks, but how are the trails. That's kind of my first area of concern. If there's alot of jogger friendly trails to get around on then I'll feel alot better about the trip. You think 2 days is enough to see everything you can see with a 1 year old?

All the most popular trails will have decent access for a stroller. Also, along the main roads in the valley, there are sidewalks that are good for strollers. The views from the sidewalks alone are awesome.

You'll be able to go partially up the mist trail, until you get to the staircase before Vernal Falls. It's worth it. I think you can get to bridal veil falls also. Go to the Yosemite NP website and look at the maps. It's a good resource.

I actually took my 1 year old camping there last summer, and did ok. We camped in the Yosemite Creek campground and it was fun. The creek was mostly dry that time of year. In May, it should be gushing.
