Our family will be staying at Evergreen lodge in a few weeks. Wondering if it's better to catch the Yart into the valley or drive. I've read about scarce parking. Anyone experience using the Yart?

YARTS is used by many folks. I am not sure where you would park to catch the YARTS bus as Evergreen Lodge is not on the direct route. Ask at the front desk.

YARTS is a good idea for your Valley tourism day. Then use the free shuttle to get around. But YARTS will not get you up to Tunnel View & to Bridalveil Fall. It does not go to Glacier Point. Driving makes more sense.

If you choose to drive an hour to the Valley instead of taking YARTS, go early. I recommend the Yosemite Falls parking lot.

There are maps in the Top Questions on the right side of this page, full TA website.
