See "A Few More Notes" below for more details about what to bring
Plan to bring the following items in a small daypack for your guided hike:
Wear comfortable and moisture wicking clothing (especially for the warm summer months of July-August). Comfortable hiking/running shoes that are with grippy soles are the best option for footwear. It's important to check the weather prior to your day to make sure you're dressing appropriately- check out our favorite weather forecast here: National Weather Service- Glacier Point (needs link)
Your trip begins and ends in Glacier Point. You will need your own vehicle or transportation for this day, plan for extra time to get to your destination and find parking. Traffic can be heavy in Yosemite National Park during the peak months of summer. You'll be meeting your guide at the intersection of Glacier Point Road and Highway 41, known as "Chinquapin". There is a small parking area, as well as bathrooms and a payphone here. Directions will be sent to you upon registration.
For more information, you can reference Yosemite National Park's webpage here regarding parking and transportation.
