Yosemite and Sequoia Hiking Tour

Hike California's Renowned National Parks

Hike in two of California's finest natural wonders--Yosemite and Sequoia National Parks. These treasured parks provide a stunning landscape of giant sequoia trees, tumbling waterfalls, alpine lakes, and soaring granite peaks. You'll be in constant awe hiking amid this natural grandeur.

Days 1-2: Sequoia National Park-Giant Forest-Pear Lake

From Fresno we shuttle to Sequoia National Park. Our first hike takes us through majestic stands of sequoia trees in Giant Forest and then via the High Sierra Trail to lush Crescent Meadow and to Moro Rock. The following day we ascend through rich forest of white fir, cedar and sugar pine enroute to the high country. We travel along the famed Watchtower route with views of Tokopah Falls, tumbling over 1000 feet. Above tree line, Heather, Aster, and Emerald lakes will welcome us along the way to our Pear Lake destination.

Days 3-4: Mariposa Grove-Glacier Point-Yosemite Valley

After a morning shuttle to Yosemite, we hike in Mariposa, the Park's largest of three groves of Giant Sequoias. Mariposa Grove contains several hundred of these monarchs, including two of the 25 largest trees in the world. The following day is spent on the spectacular Panaorama Trail, with cascading waterfalls, granite monoliths and magnificent views of the valley below.

Days 5-6: Tuolomne Meadows-Yosemite Falls

We venture into the Park's high country to Tuolumne Meadows and a hike to Lower and Upper Cathedral Lakes, among the most impressive of Yosemite's granite-wrapped High Sierra lakes. Our final hike provides a spectacular conclusion to our week as we pass through red fir and lodgepole forest to Yosemite Point with a commanding view of Yosemite Valley below. We then descend past Upper and Lower Yosemite Falls, zigzagging our way to the Valley. Following a shuttle to Fresno, we say our farewells.
