Ideal in June and early July (it gets too hot in mid to late summer), this Yosemite adventure, through the deepest gorge in Yosemite National Park, passes by some of Yosemite’s most remarkable waterfalls flowing among massive, glacially-carved canyon walls. Beautiful riverside camps in this remote wilderness offer more solitude than most destinations in Yosemite. Our adventure begins in beautiful, flower-filled Tuolumne Meadows and ends at the historic High Sierra Camp of White Wolf Camp 32 miles down canyon. Along the way we’ll pass by innumerable raging cascades and many placid pools of the mighty Tuolumne River through some of the most incredible scenery in the Sierra Nevada! Scenic highlights of this wilderness paradise include Wildcat Point, Muir Gorge and the idyllic Pate Valley, not to mention the beautiful shores of the Tuolumne River as it plummets towards Hetch Hetchy beneath 5000 ft. granite walls!

NEED TO KNOW: YOSEMITE PERMITS
Yosemite issues backcountry permits 5.5 months in advance. It’s beneficial to register before permits are issued and if you do, we recommend not making concrete travel arrangements until the permit is secured. We have a very good success rate with Yosemite permits, but if unsuccessful your deposit is 100% transferrable or refundable.
