Backpack to Glen Aulin & Waterwheel Falls with the Yosemite Conservancy

Enjoy the splendor of summer in Yosemite’s high country during this one-of-a-kind backpacking trip with an experienced naturalist guide. Start with a Friday hike along the edge of the Grand Canyon of the Tuolumne River to Glen Aulin, your home for the next two nights. Spend Saturday relaxing by the river or hiking to nearby Waterwheel Fall, then head out on Sunday on the same trail. Throughout the weekend, learn about the flora and fauna that make their home in the high country, and enjoy the dramatic scenery in this beautiful corner of the park.
