May Lake to Snow Creek Backpacking with Lasting Adventures

Length:  4 Days

Mileage & Rating:  15-18 miles (map & elevation), Easy - Moderate

Meeting Location  &  Time:  Curry Village Parking, 4:00 pm

Cost:  $950.00

Highlights:  This family-friendly backpacking trip includes some of the most iconic Yosemite vistas, coupled with fun and relatively mellow hiking. Begin the trip in Yosemite’s high country camping at the base of Mount Hoffman (10,850’) along the shore of May Lake. An ascent of Mount Hoffman is an option for those looking for extra mileage and scenery. From the high country you’ll descend into Yosemite Valley, camping directly across from the North Face of Half Dome nearly 2,750 feet above the Valley floor. The final descent takes you past the spectacular cascades of Snow Creek. This is the perfect Yosemite family backpacking trip! 

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.

Other:  The May Lake Yosemite trip combines high alpine lakes and scenery, a chance to summit a major and easy peak in Yosemite, and views into the Yosemite Valley from the northeast rim of the valley.

Required shuttle costs are included in the above costs. We also include backpacks, sleeping bags, tents, pads, trekking poles and eating utensils at NO EXTRA COST as needed. Lastly, all profits from our guided trips go towards our non-profit youth summer camp program.

Note:  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.
