Experienced backpackers, this Yosemite adventure is for you! Join veteran park ranger, Dick Ewart, on an advanced backpack trip in the spectacular Clark Range. Get ready for several twelve-mile days of hiking through some of the park's most amazing and beautiful scenery. This trip is intended only for the most hardy, experienced backpackers, so come prepared for a challenge. The Clark Range is Yosemite's southernmost mountain range and is often described as a "range within a range," making it accessible to only the most robust Yosemite backpackers.

All participants must be in excellent physical condition and have solid mountain experience.
