- Moderate Hiking
- Great for Families
Our Yosemite Alpine Meadows and Waterfalls trip is a fantastic choice for families or guests who want a great, shorter, moderate Yosemite adventure in a highly scenic area of the Park.
This trip provides a lot of return on investment. In just 4 days with wonderful hiking we’ll explore arguably the most pristine and majestic region of Yosemite National Park – Tuolumne Meadows and the upper section of the Grand Canyon of the Tuolumne River. We leave the crowds behind on this trip and venture into a land of granite domes, meandering rivers, thundering waterfalls, swimming holes, peaceful meadows, and serene wildlife. On Day 2 we have the option to leave camp set up and day hike into one of the most stunning canyons in the world with multiple, breathtaking waterfalls.
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.
