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- Yosemite Valley
Your trip begins and ends in Yosemite Valley. You will meet your guide at Yosemite Valley Lodge, where you will take the Glacier Point shuttle the starting trailhead. If you are driving a personal vehicle to the meeting location, plan for extra time to get to your destination and find parking. Traffic can be heavy in Yosemite Valley during the peak months of summer and it is important that you arrive on time in order to catch the 8:30am shuttle.
Public Transportation is an option to consider to help avoid traffic and trouble finding a parking spot. YARTS offers a variety of pick up and drop off locations from all the different gateways into the park. You can purchase tickets online ahead of time to reserve your spot at www.yarts.com!
