Muir Trail to Yosemite National
Spectacular backpacking trip with a high pass crossing, alpine
lakes, ending in Tuolumne Meadows.
This unforgettable trip routes us through some of
the most amazing parts of the California Sierra Mountains – including Yosemite
National Park. We’ll camp next to lakes and streams, with
dramatic mountain vistas surrounding us. We’ll likely see
deer, marmots, and other native Sierra animals while traveling
through the backcountry. We will also include a rest day to explore
optional day hikes – or just enjoy a book and relax!
Our guides will prepare amazing meals that will leave you ready
for the next day’s adventure. You’ll be amazed at what
can be prepared at 10,000 feet!
This trip is rated challenging for it off trail component and boulder
crossings. This trip is designed for women who have traveled in
the wilderness before and are comfortable moving through the backcountry
with a pack.
