The high-country lakes, peaks, and passes of Yosemite are truly spectacular and on this 50 mile loop we'll hike deep into the heart of this alpine environment. We'll travel mostly on trail while topping out over 4 high mountain passes -including Red Peak Pass at 11,180', the highest trail pass in Yosemite.
