Our Favorite Trips This Season

Getting around Yosemite is easier said than done sometimes. Here are a list of our favorite trips, and why we think you’ll love them too.

Red Peak Loop

ottowaysmsteinbachA new trip this season that we’ve created to delight you and embrace Yosemite in a whole new way. It spends equal time in the most remote and iconic regions of the park. Highlights include the rugged Red Peak Pass, hiking alongside the cascading “Wild and Scenic” Merced River, and a lakeside camp beneath the ice fields of the stunning Ottoway Lakes Basin.

Trans Sierra Trail

WhitneyTrlNearSummitThe legendary trip we created is an ultimate crossing of Sequoia National Park through some of the most remote areas of the high Sierra, culminating in an ascent of the highest point in the contiguous US; Mt Whitney (14,500’). It’s rugged and remote and those who are up to the 83-mile challenge will be rewarded with a backpacking adventure like few others.

Agnew to Tuolumne – John Muir Trail Pack Trip

MulesHigCntryHave you always wanted to walk on the JMT but that heavy backpack deters you? We have a 5-day pack-stock trip where the mules do the heavy lifting, so you can enjoy a section of the beautiful and iconic scenery of one of the most famous hikes in the world.

In the Spirit of John Muir

Zeki Basan and our SYMG guide Chris Plewa explored remote regions of Yosemite to embrace the spirit of John Muir himself. Take a look at the 72 mile trek these two covered, including the amazing Red Peaks and greater Yosemite Valley.
