Trip Highlights

  • Explore Yosemite National Park in the backcountry of the High Sierras
  • Follow expert guides who impart regional knowledge and teach backpacking skills
  • Spend 4 days hiking 2-9 miles a day above 8,000', rewarded with wondrous views

Yosemite National Park is truly one of America's most beautiful gems, and hiking the high Sierras boasts world-class views. Spend four days backpacking through this amazing scenery on a guided trip with REI!

Whether you're new to backpacking or simply want to skip the hassle of planning a trip, this adventure speaks to all kinds of travelers. We explore what some call "the real Yosemite"—the high country. While our routes vary according to season, permits, and trail conditions, we're sure to see jaw-dropping views of granite peaks and domes on an unforgettable trip.

Our guides reveal the wonders of the mountains while teaching us how to establish camp with minimal impact, the basics of packing light, and other backpacking tricks and tips. Participants are required to carry personal gear (about 20-25 lbs) and a portion of group gear (10-15 lbs) for the duration of the trip. We hike 2 to 9 miles a day above 8,000', with anywhere between 200 and 1,700 feet of elevation change.

Looking for more ways to get away from the crowds and explore Yosemite’s backcountry? See another side of the park with our Hetch Hetchy backpacking trip or set yourself up for some stunning views on our Yosemite Valley backpacking adventure.

Trip Itinerary and Details

Important Notice: Day 1 is the day you should plan to arrive at the meeting point for the trip. This may require departing your hometown one or more days in advance and traveling on an overnight flight.

  • Day 1 - Our adventure begins at Backpackers Camp with dinner and orientation.

    This trip begins in Yosemite National Park, CA. Today you will meet your guides and the other group members at the Tuolumne Meadows Backpackers' camp just uphill from the Dana Campfire Circle in the middle of the Tuolumne Meadows Campground. Group members must arrive at camp by 4:30 p.m. for a trip orientation, gear check and dinner. Please allow yourself plenty of time as it takes some time to get up to Tuolumne Meadows. Dinner included.

  • Day 2 - Backpack among the peaks and domes of the high country.

    Today we wake and enjoy breakfast before packing up and heading out to our first backcountry campsite. Depending on our route, we may start with either a quick caravan to the trailhead, or catch a park shuttle. We'll distribute group gear and food, review techniques for correctly packing a backpack, and discuss our route. This is typically a full first day of backpacking, with time along the way for lunch and skills development. At dusk, look forward to camaraderie around the campfire as we watch for shooting stars overhead. All meals and snacks provided.

  • Day 3 - Continue exploring the backcountry and building skills.

    Another glorious day in the mountains awaits us as we don our packs and hit the trail. We'll continue our exploration and education among the alpine meadows, stunning lakes, and beautiful vistas. Perhaps we'll have the opportunity to take a refreshing swim or drop our packs for a less encumbered survey of the area near our camp for the night. A hearty dinner will satisfy your belly and the Sierra stars will satisfy your soul. All meals and snacks provided.

  • Day 4 - Enjoy a final view of Yosemite's granite icons before hiking out.

    Some routes may have the option for a quick morning hike before breaking camp and beginning the journey to our trail's end. We plan to arrive back at our cars between 4:00pm-5:00 p.m, but there is no guarantee as trail conditions and other factors can impact travel times. Those flying out of Fresno or Oakland should plan flights after 10:30 p.m. Breakfast, snacks and lunch included.

              At the heart our experience was of course - our awesome guides Kyle and Erica. They were experienced, knowledgeable, had great attitudes, and were passionate and inspiring about everything outdoors. Weather was great, no mosquitoes, bugs, rain. Perfect. Looking forward to our next adventure. Some pics from our adventure: http://www.flickr.com/photos/shrimpchip/sets/72157634950000239/

              • Why did you choose this trip?:
              • Wanted to get away from the concrete jungle, and take a different vacation. We've been to to the Canadian Rockies (Lake Louise - awesome BTW) , but bever backpacked before. Wife and I wanted to be with a group of other enthusiastic newbies guided by knowledgeable and experienced guides.
              • What was the highlight of your trip?:
              • Cathedral Lakes, Sunrise Lake, views of Half Dome and Clouds Rest. Serene meadows, etc. Forced to turn cell phone off =p
              • What would be your advice to potential travelers?:
              • If you can, do a little conditioning before going out as they advise. Add weight (you will be carrying 35-45 lbs (some is really dependent on your own personal gear weight) and do some hill or stair climbing. My wife and I live at sea level, so the 9000+ ft above is definitely a different feel. If you don't have time, no worries, everyone paces themselves.

                  Thanks to Alex's encouragement, I brought my fishing pole, reel and lures along and I caught three Rainbow Trout in one of the Ten Lakes! Went swimming in one of those lakes, too. And after I had already gotten out of the water, and decided my sweaty shirt needed a cleaning, I jokingly threw it to our guide Gary and said, "Hey Gary... would you mind washing it for me?" I was grinning, knowing full-well how much I was teasing Gary. Without hesitation, Gary smiled and proceeded to wash my stinky, sweaty t shirt. Whata guy! There isn't anything these REI guides won't do!! :)

                  • What was the highlight of your trip?:
                  • Our guides Gary Elbert and Alex Leckie were supreme! They cooked the greatest meals, gathered and cleaned our water, tended to our wounds, encouraged and helped us when we tired, taught us all sorts of interesting things, and even... washed our clothes! Now that's devotion.

Or, for someone who already knows how to backpack, it is just a overall great trip.

                                  All aspects of this trip were well planned. The food was very good for a backpacking trip. Spaghetti and Fajitas are not meals I expected on a backpacking trip. The hikes were about what I was looking for in difficulty. The second day we did day hikes and were given several options. I opted for a more difficult hike that gave a great view of the Northern portion of the park. If you want to visit Yosemite and do a backpacking trip, this is a great way to do it.

                                  • I took this trip because I wanted to take a backpacking trip in Yosemite and plans with friends fell through.

                                  • The day hikes we did on day two of the trip gave some great views of the Northern part of Yosemite.

                                  • If you are not familiar with the area around Yosemite ( I wasn't. ), pay attention to the time that is mentioned to get to the meeting location. Yes, it is only 110 miles from Fresno, but it is still going to take the 4 hours they list to reach the meeting location. I gave myself extra time to get there and was glad I did.

                                      Very organized trip. Hiking was strenuous enough to get a good workout, but not so bad that the group couldn't stay together. Also liked that groups of us would form to try out routes. Everyone seemed to be able to find a group that fit their desire for adventure. Was amazed at how much camaraderie there was in the group after only a couple of days. Definitely recommend this trip if you want to learn more about backpacking or want to enjoy the majesty and beauty of Yosemite.

                                      • Why did you choose this trip?:
                                      • I chose this trip because I wanted to extend my backpacking experience beyond several day hikes and single night camping trips into multi-day trips into the back country. The Rocky Mountain trip seemed a little too hard and this seemed like the perfect trip for someone looking to grow their skills. Several people in the group were day hikers/ car campers and wanted to do the same thing.
                                      • What was the highlight of your trip?:
                                      • The very best part of this trip was the day hike we took from our base camp at the lower Grant Lake up to a 10,000 ft ridge overlooking the 10 lakes area. We had lunch on the ridge and just sat there taking in the gorgeous scenery for several minutes.
                                      • What would be your advice to potential travelers?:
                                      • Really pay attention to the gear list and be very systematic about it. I used everything on the list and other things would have been dead weight. Definitely get in cardio several weeks/months before you trip if you don't exercise much. You'll need it for the hill climbs and some of the longer stretches. A down sweater/jacket is ideal for keeping warm over fleece.

                                          The itinerary was very well planned and worked well for me - a flat lander in reasonable shape but doesn't work out that much. Loved Yosemite and the guides' love and knowledge of the place also. The views were stunning, and the group was terrific. The REI staff on the phone and email were terrific as well. The only thing I didn't like was balancing my dislike of getting up in the middle of the night with a full bladder, with the important need to drink lots of water at that altitude :-)

                                          • Why did you choose this trip?:
                                          • I wanted to go backpack camping with my son, but don't have enough experience to feel comfortable in bear country on our own. The itinerary looked good, and I liked that it assumed comfort being outdoors, but would teach some basics to first-time backpack campers.
                                          • What was the highlight of your trip?:
                                          • All of it, but probably enjoying the beauty of our essentially private lake Saturday night, and how great the group was with my 15 yr-old son.
                                          • What would be your advice to potential travelers?:
                                          • As they say, pack EXACTLY what is suggested. You really don't need more. Get your backpack fitted well to you and use it, full, in advance with your boots. Bring your smile and good attitude and you'll have a great time.

                                              The guides were extremely knowledgeable in the botany, geology, and weather of the area. And good cooks.

                                              • If you plan on using YARTS transportation, it is not all that convenient for this trip due to their schedule. Also if you fly into Merced, CA on the regional airline ,Great Lakes Aviation, don't be surprised if your flight is canceled or several hours late.
