Visit Sierra Nevada, California with Mighway

Rent an RV in Sierra Nevada


Sierra-Nevada is perfect for camping, adventuring, or exploring the local culture. California’s mountainous east beckons nature-lovers everywhere, who flock here to experience the wide range of environments and activities available at any time of year. From some of the most famous national parks — Yosemite, Kings Canyon and Sequoia, all offering incredible mountain scenery — to lesser-known gems, like Calaveras Big Trees and Bodie State Parks, there is much to see and do. Without Yosemite, there would not be a national park system. The park, established in 1890, was the first of its kind and with some of the best hiking trails and magnificent views, Yosemite is the place for a memorable vacation. Driving around this region is the best way to see everything it has to offer, and get ready to strap on your hiking boots — getting into the wilderness is often the only way to truly experience Sierra-Nevada. But if you’re looking for a more comfortable experience, there are also plenty of lodges that accommodate visitors of all inclinations. Plan a trip with a rental RV from Mighway, and let the journey unfold.

Places to Visit near Sierra Nevada


Glacier Point

Glacier Point is a viewpoint above Yosemite Valley, in California, USA. It is located on the south wall of Yosemite Valley at an elevation of 7,214 feet, 3,200 feet above Curry Village. The point offers a superb view of Yosemite National Park's Yosemite Valley, including Yosemite Falls, Half Dome, Vernal Fall, Nevada Fall, and Clouds Rest. Glacier Point can be reached from the Valley via Glacier Point Road. During the summer, Glacier Point is often crowded with tourists. Tours by bus are also available and take about four hours. The road is usually open from June through October. In winter, Glacier Point Road closes due to snow, and access to Glacier Point from the Badger Pass Ski Area is only by ski or snowshoe. Glacier Point can also be reached via the Four Mile Trail, which ascends the 3,200 feet in 4.6 miles. This moderate to strenuous trail can provide access to Glacier Point when the Glacier Point Road is closed. Note, however, that the trail can be extremely hazardous when covered with snow or ice, so is usually closed by the Park Service from December through May. Another 8.2 miles trail runs from Glacier Point down to the Valley, via the Panorama Trail, past Nevada and Vernal Falls.

Half Dome

Half Dome is a granite dome in Yosemite National Park, located in northeastern Mariposa County, California, at the eastern end of Yosemite Valley — possibly Yosemite's most familiar rock formation. The granite crest rises more than 4,737 ft above the valley floor. One of the most stunning features is this 40-foot-long sliver of granite on Half Dome, named the Thank God Ledge. It's the only way to get beyond the Visor, a massive roof that looms over the Regular Northwest Face route. Most people crawl, there are several people who prefer to walk it, face out, since that’s “cooler.” It takes only about 30 seconds to make it across the ledge, and technically requires no climbing skills, but staring down at 1800 feet in the air isn't everyone's cup of tea. Half Dome is nearly as whole as it ever was. The impression from the valley floor that this is a round dome which has lost its northwest half is an illusion. From Washburn Point, Half Dome can be seen as a thin ridge of rock oriented northeast-southwest, with its southeast side almost as steep as its northwest side except for the very top. Although the trend of this ridge, as well as that of Tenaya Canyon, is probably controlled by master joints, 80 percent of the northwest "half" of the original dome may well still be there.  Half Dome was originally called "Tis-sa-ack," meaning Cleft Rock in the language of the local Native Americans. Tis-sa-ack is also the name of the fourth route on the formation, ascended by Royal Robbins and Don Peterson over eight days in October 1969. Tis-sa-ack is the name of a mother from a native legend. The face seen in Half Dome is supposed to be hers. Tis-sa-ack is the name of a Mono Lake Paiute Indian girl in the Yosemite Native American legend. John Muir referred to the peak as "Tissiack". In 1988, Half Dome was featured on a 25 cent United States postage stamp. An image of Half Dome, along with John Muir and the California Condor, appears on the California State quarter, released in January 2005. Starting October 2010, an image of Half Dome is included on the new revised California drivers license in the top right-hand corner. Half Dome is also an element or inspiration of various company and organization logos, including that of The North Face, Sierra Designs, & Mountain Khakis outdoor product companies, the Sierra Club environmental group and the Sierra Entertainment game studio..

Vernal Fall

Vernal Fall is a 317 feet waterfall on the Merced River just downstream of Nevada Fall in Yosemite National Park, California. Vernal Fall, as well as Nevada Fall, is clearly visible from Glacier Point. The waterfall runs all year long, although by the end of summer it is substantially reduced in volume and can split into multiple strands, rather than a single curtain of water. Yan-o-pah (little cloud) was the local name of the fall before it was named "Vernal" by Lafayette Bunnell, a member of the Mariposa Brigade in 1851. Hikers will start at the Happy Isles trail head in Yosemite Valley. Travel is generally East-South-East. This is one of the shortest (1.3 mi/2.1 km)—though in places steep—and most popular trails in Yosemite. The trail is mostly shaded and is progressive in incline until it reaches the base of the waterfall where mist sprays onto the hikers.Depending on the time of the year hikers can be totally drenched by the time they pass the mist from the waterfall. The final 15 minutes of the trail is a very steep climb up rocks to the top of the waterfall. Once atop the falls there is a pool of water called the Emerald Pool around which hikers lounge and rest. There is also a 20 degree slope of rock with water flowing into the pool called the Silver Apron.Swimming above a waterfall is against park rules and can carry with it a great deal of risk: rocks are slippery, and strong undercurrents exist that may not be visible from the surface.  Though warnings are clearly posted to stay out of the water, more than a dozen people have died in the last decade by entering the water above Vernal Fall, including the Silver Apron and Emerald Pool.

Bridalveil Fall

Bridalveil Fall is one of the most prominent waterfalls in the Yosemite Valley in California, seen yearly by millions of visitors to Yosemite National Park. The waterfall is 188 metres  in height and flows year round. The Ahwahneechee tribe believed that Bridalveil Fall was home to a vengeful spirit named Pohono which guarded the entrance to the valley, and that those leaving the valley must not look directly into the waterfall lest they be cursed. They also believed that inhaling the mist of Bridalveil Fall would improve one's chances of marriage.

Convict Lake

Escape to Freedom, guy!

Situated at the base of Mount Morrison, the deep blue waters of Convict Lake invite you to enjoy a liesurely picnic or stroll along the lakeside trail.  The epitome of peacefulness today, Convict Lake got its name from an incident that was nothing but peaceful.  In 1871, six inmates from a Nevada prison escaped here, and eventually battled their way out with a shootout, ultimately giving Convict Lake its name.  Today visitors escape to Convict Lake for fishing, horseback riding, hiking, camping and to enjoy fine dining at the Convict Lake Restaurant.   Fishing derbies are held throughout the season at Convict Lake - try your luck at catching a monster trout from a boat, float tube or from the shore.  Ride by horseback on a guided trail ride or poke around for 500-year old fossils in the metamorphic rock formations.  Autumn is the perfect time to visit Convict Lake, with brilliant fall colors and excellent fishing.
