"Majestic Mountain Loop"? Huh. Found a website that suggests three days for Yosemite + Sequoia / Kings Canyon. That's nuts. The "day" for Yosemite is

Stop 1 - Yosemite Mountain Sugar Pine Railroad

Stop 2 - Wawona Pioneer Village

Stop 3 - Glacier Point

Stop 4 - Tunnel View

Stop 5 - Yosemite Valley

Again, nuts. You'd need about 48 hours in your day. And it's Pioneer History Center, not Village. Just nuts.



Lodging in Yosemite is best booked closer to a year in advance.

I would not include Death Valley, Las Vegas, & Bakersfield in a September trip. Nope.

As this is the Yosemite forum, I'll "vote" that you include lots of time in Yosemite. The Eastern Sierra is popular in fall as well, as long as there are no forest fires.

So my "vote" is lots of time in Yosemite plus SeKi and Mammoth Lakes.

I would do the mountain route.

Bakersfield and that area has some lesser attractions, but not nearly as grand as the mountain route.

PacNWF, I agree the 3 parks in 3 days is not enough time. It is basically a stop-look-go itinerary in my mind without time to really enjoy the sights.

But the basic itinerary can form the foundation for trip planning for a longer trip. It does list major sights to see in the 3 parks.

The Majestic Mountain Loop marketing campaign has been promoted for nearly a decade by local tourism agencies. It has received multiple tourism marketing awards at the state, regional and national levels. The marketing name also been written up in many magazines, news media, and travel websites.
