Ansel Adams Wilderness Backpacking along the High Route

Challenging Backpacking Trip with Off trail options.

This dynamic trip with allow us to explore spectacular lakes, dramatic peaks, and pristine backcountry. We will also include optional off trail climbs to surrounding lakes and peaks, depending on the desire of the group. Of course, we will throw in a swimming hole or two!
We will camp near lakes and streams often on granite rock. Our guides will prepare amazing meals that will leave you ready for the next day’s adventure.

This trip is rated challenging for its 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.
