Grand Canyon of the Tuolumne Backpacking with Lasting Adventures

Length:  6 Days

Mileage & Rating:  38 miles (map & elevation), Strenuous

Cost:  $1500.00

Meeting Location  &  Time:  Tuolumne Meadows Store, 4:00 pm

Highlights:  The Grand Canyon of the Tuolumne is a true gem in a less-visited area of Yosemite. The pure waters of the Tuolumne River, fed by Sierra snow melt, run wild and scenic through the Muir Gorge in the central region of Yosemite National Park. In this 3,000 foot deep canyon you are treated to everything from rushing cascades to deep tranquil pools that are perfect for a refreshing and invigorating soak. This is truly a trip for water lovers as you are never far from the river. You end this trip by departing the Tuolumne River and climbing to May Lake with an option to summit Mount Hoffman at 10,850’.

Traditional Backpacking:  Lasting Adventures runs traditional backpacking trips. Traditional backpacking is done without the use of porters, stock, or other assistance. You will be expected to carry all of your own personal gear and a share of the group gear and food in a backpack for the duration of this trip. The weight can be expected to be 30-50 lbs and no more than the recommended ⅓ of your body weight.

As needed, it is recommended that participants discuss their ability to conduct a backpacking trip with their doctor, including (but not limited to) the ability to carry heavy loads over long distances and strenuous and uneven terrain. Levels of difficulty listed on our web site are relative and in no way an objective declaration of difficulty, and a regular physical exercise program is recommended prior to going on your adventure.

Included:  Guides, permits, shuttle costs, all meals in the backcountry (Day 2 lunch through Day 7 lunch), and all group gear (cooking gear, bear cans, water filters, first aid, toiletries, etc.). We also include internal frame backpacks, sleeping bags, sleeping pads, tents, trekking poles, and eating gear (as requested) at no extra cost.

Not Included:  Examples: Personal items (see Equipment List online), front-country food (see above), optional trip insurance, tips for guides (10-20% of trip fee), Yosemite gate entrance fee (~$35), and alcoholic beverages.

Note:  This is a strenuous trip. Participants should be experienced backpackers and/or in above-average to good physical condition. All trips are subject to Lasting Adventures obtaining the necessary wilderness permits. Although our success rate is 98%, should we not obtain the exact trail-head, a trip of equal quality will be obtained. Should weather, fire, and/or delayed seasonal openings affect the chosen itinerary, a different itinerary will be offered. You will be kept in contact throughout this process.
