You’ll meet your hiking guide and group at Autocamp Yosemite between 6 and 9 AM the morning the trip begins. If you will not have your own vehicle, we can also pick you up in Yosemite National Park (at Curry Village) or in Mariposa, California. Your guide will be in contact approximately 2 weeks before your trip and will provide directions to Autocamp. You can leave your vehicle parked at Autocamp for the duration of the tour.
Most of our guests drive personal or rental vehicles to Autocamp Yosemite, but you can also travel to and from Yosemite National Park using train and bus options from much of California:
From Fresno: Yosemite Area Rapid Transit (YARTS) is offering 4 bus rides each direction from Fresno to Yosemite Valley. If you’re not renting a vehicle, this is the simplest way to reach Yosemite.
From Other California Cities: by rail on the Amtrak San Joaquin Train to the city of Merced (serviced by most large cities in California) or by Amtrak “Thruway” Bus Service from Merced to Yosemite Valley. To book your trip, use Amtrak’s Online Reservation Service to book round-trip Amtrak travel to “YOS” (Yosemite Valley).
MINIMUM OF 2 GUESTS
If a trip does not reach the minimum number of guests, you may choose to transfer to another trip date or another trip, be refunded your payments in full, or you may have the choice to pay a supplemental fee to run the trip with fewer guests. We make the final determination for these trips 4-6 weeks before the departure date, and notify guests of changes and options immediately.
