One of the premier adventures that Yosemite has to offer!
This hike offers the gorgeous mountain views, grandeur, & serenity that Yosemite is famous for, all while camping near the crystal-clear rushing waters of the Tuolumne River on this five-day adventure.
With spectacular vistas around every corner, the Grand Canyon of the Tuolumne is a hidden gem among the High Sierras. Its mountainous views are only accessible on foot, which guarantees an off-the-beaten path backpacking adventure. This itinerary offers a unique chance to see the powerful majesty of Yosemite through the eyes of 20th-century explorers John Muir and Galen Clark.
After meeting our group of fellow adventurers, we don our packs and enjoy the beautiful scenery on the captivating descent into the Grand Canyon of the Tuolumne. Climb up the Muir Gorge bypass for views of Grand Mountain, Colby Mountain, and Tuolumne Peak. Enjoy a refreshing swim in the sparkling, blue river waters. Pass California Falls en route to dramatic 50-mile views at Glen Aulin. Walk among colorful wildflower blooms in the largest sub-alpine meadow in the Sierra Nevada. Delicious meals accompany each evening you are camped along the banks of the Tuolumne River, its rushing waters lulling you to sleep after an exhilarating day in the outdoors.
