Backpacking Yosemite

Backpacking Yosemite

Backpacking Yosemite is an experience that brings with it countless unforeseen challenges, memories, adventures, and fun times. It is an experience that you’ll want to recreate every year for the rest of your life. With its unreal scenery, its incredible weather, and its over 800 miles of trails, it’s true Big Game backpacking. It’s a must visit.

For the experienced, get out there, get a map and go. For the less experienced, or for those wanting a little more texture in their journey, the Yosemite Mountaineering School & Guide Service offers great guided backpacking trips through some of the region’s most breathtaking terrain.

Available are 2, 3, or 4-day adventures. On the tours explorers will learn or be refreshed on the basic skills and tools of the backpacking trade that are much-needed to explore and enjoy a Yosemite backpacking trip. Disengaging from cellphones, the trip teaches you how to do seeming impossible things like “read a map” and “use a compass” and “store food safely” and “not get eaten by a bear” and that sort of thing. Pardon the hyperbole.
