CHOOSING A YOSEMITE NATIONAL PARK DAY HIKE
Our Yosemite day hike tours are designed to deliver once-in-a-lifetime sights at every turn.
Our guides’ choice is the Clouds Rest Day Hike, where you’ll summit the iconic 9,926-foot peak. Before arriving at our final destination, we’ll spend a spectacular day on the trails. See the beautiful Tenaya Lake, cross streams of the Sunrise Lakes and trek along the south edge of Tenaya Canyon. From the top of Clouds Rest, you’ll have a 360-degree view of famous sights like Half Dome, Mount Hoffmann, Vogelsang Peak and the Yosemite Valley.
Want to see North America’s tallest waterfall? Join us on the Upper Yosemite Falls Trail to get up close and personal with this breathtaking waterfall. As you trek along the steep trails, you’ll be treated to panoramic views of Yosemite Valley for the perfect photo opportunity. Experience the challenging yet fulfilling ascent to Columbia Point and onward to Upper Yosemite Falls, where water thunders down for 1,430 feet.
The largest tree in the world is the Giant Sequoia, which Yosemite National Park offers in abundance. Come hike in the Mariposa Grove and meet the famous 1,800-year-old Grizzly Giant. Learn about the natural and cultural history of the Sierra Nevadas from your knowledgeable, friendly wilderness guide. Your final destination, Wawona Point, offers stunning views of Wawona Dome and the South Fork of the Merced River.
