3 Great Sites to Visit on Your Yosemite Trekking Tour
Enlisting the help of a licensed wilderness tour guide, like the ones from Discovery Treks, is a great way to get off the beaten path and into the wild of Yosemite. However, there are a multitude of different trails and landmarks to see, so how do you choose the best one?
Well, here are three of the most popular sites to visit, so let’s take a look.
Tuolumne to Yosemite Valley
For those who really want to spend some serious time on their Yosemite trekking tour, the Tuolumne to Yosemite Valley hike is nothing to scoff at. Clocking in at approximately 33 miles, this trek often takes 4-5 days. It’s become known as one of the area’s classic hikes, due to the vast amount of landmarks and sites you’ll pass through. There are a number of lakes, waterfalls, and creeks you’ll see, in addition to visiting the Clouds Rest and Half Dome sites.
Yosemite Falls to Snow Peak Loop
This is another tough trek, but it’s well worth it, as you’ll get to see the tallest waterfall in the park up close. The Yosemite Falls to Snow Peak Loop trek takes around 4-5 days and is more than 30-miles long. You’ll have a chance to hike to the top of El Capitan. Those looking for a more remote and secluded hike might decide to hike Indian Rock and the North Dome. If you want to add some time onto your trip, you can take another day or two to explore the North Rim of Yosemite Valley.
Red Peak Pass
On the scale of 1-10, many hikers rate this Yosemite trekking tour around an eight, but don’t let that scare you away: the rewards are well worth it. On this 51-mile hike, you’ll certainly be going off the beaten path for this one, hiking over and through the 11,150-feet-high Red Peak Pass. But you’ll also see some unmatched beauty along the way, like Washburn and Ottoway lakes, Verne and Nevada falls, and Little Yosemite Valley. If you want to experience the true heart of the High Sierra, the Red Peak Pass tour is for you.
