Whether you are looking to tackle Half Dome for the first time or want the thrill of standing on the summit with new friends, this is an unforgettable experience that is sure to top your list of things to do in Yosemite! Enjoy a one-night guided backpack adventure with experienced naturalist guide, Glen Young, who will share insider stories and tips for the trail. The trip kicks off with a Friday evening get-together in Yosemite Valley, followed by a Saturday morning backpack to Little Yosemite Valley where you will camp for the night at a comfortable site that includes bear-proof food lockers and restrooms. On Sunday, hike to the Half Dome cables and make your ascent before the heat, crowds and afternoon thunderstorms. You'll get back down to Yosemite Valley in time to enjoy a well-deserved cold beverage in the afternoon while you recount your amazing adventure with a group of new friends.
In addition to camping during the trip, the Experience Package also includes camping before and after, on August 21 & 23 at Upper Pines Campground in Yosemite Valley.
