Yosemite Backpacking Trips
Backpacking - Yosemite Grand Traverse
8 Days / 7 Nights, Moderate-Difficult
This backpack trip is a real stunner with highlights including a Half Dome ascent, a section of the John Muir Trail, a tour of Yosemite Valley and a nearly 60-mile hiking traverse through the heart of Yosemite. The start is from a remote trailhead in the Ansel Adams Wilderness area in Southern Yosemite. We'll enter the park after the first day over Post Peak Pass into a very remote section of Yosemite. From here we'll travel the high country with moderate mileage each day through a few of Yosemite's famous High Camps before climbing Half Dome, and eventually exiting the trail through Cathedral Lakes into Tuolumne Meadows 8-days later.
