Massive Adventure: Yosemite National Park

Yosemite National Park is a massive, wild wonderland with endless possibilities for sight-seeing, scenic drives, hikes and more. Thundering waterfalls, jaw-dropping views, towering granite monoliths, glacial-sculpted cliffs and valleys, remote mountains and a wild, serene backcountry.  Yosemite encompasses breathtaking wonders at every turn. 

Make the most of your time by joining one of our expert guides for an unforgettable encounter with this iconic National Park. Here are our three favorite trails to get you started.

The Pohono Trail

The Pohono Trail offers some of the best panoramic vistas of the Park with views of El Capitan, Yosemite Falls, the Three Brothers and other iconic features of the west end of Yosemite Valley. This trail offers one of the most dramatic lookouts at Taft Point and a 365 view point from Sentinel Dome – the high point of the hike at 8,122 ft.

HIKE IT with Wildland: Inn Based (5 Days), Basecamp (5 Days), Day Hike: Taft Point & Sentinel Dome

North Dome from Porcupine Creek

This trail starts on Tioga Road in the high country of Yosemite and brings us out to the North Rim of Yosemite Valley. This trail features stupendous views, pleasant forest walking and access to Yosemite’s only above water natural arch- Indian Rock.

HIKE IT with Wildland: This hike is a special treat on some of our Inn Based and Basecamp tours and is  the highlight of our Portered Snow Creek trip!

COMING SOON: Look for this 8 mile hike on the list of Day Hikes in 2019!

Young Lakes via Dog Lake/ Glen Aulin

This hike brings us out of Tuolumne Meadows to reveal phenomenal views of the serrated peaks of the Cathedral Range. This trail passes Lembert Dome and explores Dog Lake before making the ascent to Young Lakes. This hike is the first day of our Portered Mt. Conness trip. When the trail is done as more than just a day hike, it opens the possibility of attempting Mt. Conness – the 7th highest peak in Yosemite!
