The Ansel Adams Wilderness – running along the spine of the High Sierra in California – is one of America’s most stunning alpine mountain landscapes. Originating along the southern and eastern edges of Yosemite National Park, the Ansel Adams Wilderness encompasses 79,000 acres and features 350 miles of hiking trails! It is characterized by imposing granite peaks and ridges, jaw-dropping views, vast alpine meadows covered in wildflowers, pristine creeks and lakes, and a lifetime of exploration opportunities for the adventurous traveler.
On this extraordinary trip, we hike with light day packs as horses and mules transport all of the gear and supplies to our amazing camp on the shores of a scenic lake. We’ll spend the our days exploring this unique, spectacular mountain environment on and off maintained trails. We’ll hike to high mountain cirques, summit peaks, hidden lakes and more!
This trip is operated in partnership with Southern Yosemite Mountain Guides, a permitted outfitter on the Sierra and Inyo National Forests.
