Join Wildland Trekking and explore the Sierra Nevada Mountain Range in the stunning Emigrant Wilderness just north of Yosemite National Park. This 5-day trek takes us along glacially carved canyons and past beautiful creeks and lakes, massive granite peaks, lush meadows and aromatic pine forests. This trip defines California’s famous “Range of Light” as we discover a shimmering wonderland of granite domes and pristine lakes, many above tree line in the alpine zone. If you’d like to experience the wonders of the Sierra backcountry, but with much more solitude than Yosemite, this trip is a fantastic choice!
