1 day in yosemite with kids (10, 9, 7)

please help with ideas for a day trip, arriving by 7 am, leaving when it is dark. our kids like to hike, steep hikes are fine too. but what can we do in a day? fellow tripadvisors have always given us great ideas, so, hoping to get your advice again. thx

From another poster in a recent post. Great website for what you are after.

Beware, once you visit the website, you'll lose an hour out of your day. You have been warned.

One day?

Choose ONE

Taft Point - Pohono Trail - Sentinel Dome loop: 4+ miles, on the Glacier Point road. (Only a few hours, but must drive to get there. Can add to other things.)

Rent bikes in the Valley first thing, then use them to visit Lower Yosemite Fall, to ride out & look for climbers on El Capitan, to ride the bike loop, to park at Happy Isles (explore) & hike to Vernal Fall, to ride out to Mirror Lake/Meadow, etc.

Drive up to Tioga Road and hike a dome (2 hrs) and to a high country lake (2-3 hrs.)

------

Definitely read the Top Questions & Itineraries in the upper right.
