Mt. Whitney Backpack

Ready to make a change in your life? This High Sierra adventure appeals to women ready to meet a challenge, physical or otherwise!

This is our twenty-fourth annual backpacking trip to Mt. Whitney, and we've guided literally hundreds of women to the summit.

This 8-day trip covers about 58 miles in six hiking days. We'll walk through some of the most dramatic, beautiful scenery in the High Sierra.

Our route goes through Sequoia National Park and follows the Pacific Crest Trail and the John Muir Trail. The climax of our trip is the summit of Mt. Whitney. At 14,495', it's the highest point in the continental United States.

If you ever wanted to experience the true, authentic nature of this challenging backpack, we'll help you accomplish your goal to become a Whitney Woman!.
