Buying backcountry maps in the park?

Postby MNHikerMom » Tue Jul 18, 2017 7:41 pm

Can we buy our backcountry hiking maps when we get to Yosemite? If so, where? Normally we would buy them ahead of time, but because of the high snowpack, and uncertainty with our route, I'm wondering if we can wait to buy the maps until we are there and we know exactly where we plan to hike. We are spending 3 nights camping in the valley before we begin our backpacking trip.

Thank you.

You can buy maps in the Valley at the gear store at Curry Village, the visitors' center, and maybe the village grocery store. I can't remember who makes them. The best map is the Tom Harrison 1:63,360 scale of Yosemite High Country. You really should get it ahead of time, and it'll cover just about every route you're considering...accurately.
