EAST TO YOSEMITE VIA HIGHWAY 120
Although backpacking in breathtaking Yosemite National Park can bring out the John Muir and
Ansel Adams in anyone, the road trip there also offers opportunities for appreciating nature and
the colorful Gold Rush era that transformed it. Highway 120 is the most direct route from Marin,
with enjoyable breaks along the way that might help you feel a bit more patient with summer traffic
heading into the park. When planning your stops, don’t forget about literally refueling: there are
no gas stations in Yosemite. Groveland has the closest stations to the Big Oak Flat entrance; you’ll
find Tesla chargers in both Groveland and Yosemite Valley.
