Backpacking Yosemite with Half Dome hike

ABOUT YOSEMITE BACKPACKING

 

Join us on one of America's most coveted outdoor trips. Yosemite backpacking offers an experience of beauty and adventure that is hardly surpassed by any other trip in the world. See for yourself why Half Dome is one of the most photographed rock walls in the world and why Yosemite inspired America’s first State and National Park.  

We are offering limited trips for this stunning three-day, two-night trip covering 22 miles of Yosemite's most amazing vistas.

THIS HIKE IS STRENUOUS AND REQUIRES GOOD PHYSICAL FITNESS!

During our 3 days in the backcountry your guide will offer instruction in essential backcountry skills. You will learn about the “Leave No Trace” principles, navigation using a map and compass, layering in the backcountry, and backcountry meal preparations.

WHAT’S GREAT

 Climb Half Dome (permits included)

 Learn backpacking skills such as navigation and wilderness safety protocols

 Take in spectacular views of Yosemite and 3 waterfalls 

One of our backpacking itineraries hikes from Glacier Point toward Illilouette Falls, with views of both Half Dome and the waterfall. We make camp at Illilouette Creek and go over backpacking basics, navigation skills and essentials of hiking in the High Sierra. 

 The next day we make our way to Little Yosemite Valley where we find good rest and a comfortable campsite aside the Merced River. The next day is packed with action as we climb 2700 feet to the top of Half Dome. The same day we hike out all the way to Happy Isles on the stunning Mist trail passing by Vernal and Nevada Falls.  

 The other itinerary takes us from Tuolumne Meadows to Yosemite Valley. This classic 3 day 28 mile backpacking trip also includes the now coveted half dome day hike permits. This trail is marked by rivers and lakes, spectacular views and uncrowded trails. 

No matter which trip you join us on we are excited to have you join us on this pristine trek!
