Not just a great Valley...but a shrine to human foresight, the strength of granite, the power of glaciers, the persistence of life, and the tranquility of the High Sierra. Yosemite National Park, one of the first wilderness parks in the United States, is best known for its waterfalls, but within its nearly 1,200 square miles, you can find deep valleys, grand meadows, ancient giant sequoias, a vast wilderness area, and much more.

Rankin Ranch is located approximately 4 hours (220 miles) from Yosemite National Park. The ranch and the national park both offer iconic American West experiences. Many guests enjoy staying at the ranch when traveling from Yosemite to Las Vegas or Los Angeles.
Hunewill Ranch is located North of Yosemite National Park. The approximately two-hour drive from the ranch is breathtaking as it winds through the gorgeous Sierra Nevada mountains. It is about 100 miles from the ranch to the main center of the park.
