Going on a Discovery Treks Half Dome backpacking & camping guided hiking trip is a once in a life time experience. For three days we’ll guide you on a hike to the famous and most popular location within Yosemite National Park - Half Dome. Hiking to Half Dome is so popular, even day hikers have to have a permit to hike the monolith, limiting the numbers of people hiking the great monolith. We will begin the hike in Yosemite Valley before backpacking into the backcountry to our first few nights of camping on our way to Half Dome. The difficulty of this hike increases significantly with your day hike up Half Dome before we return to Yosemite Valley on the final day. *Route Variation - Our specific hiking route and campsites on each departure are dependent upon permit availability. Difficulty of the hike will also vary based on the route change. Additionally, the ascent up Half Dome is very challenging and is weather permitting.

Trek alongside three major waterfalls in Yosemite National Park — Illilouette Fall, Nevada Fall and Vernal Fall — on this full-day guided hike. After a shuttle ride to Glacier Point, take in scenic views of Half Dome and other landmarks as you learn about the park’s natural features. Then embark on a moderately strenuous 8.5-mile journey on foot, descending more than 3,000 feet to the valley floor via the Panorama Trail and the Mist Trail. This tour operates from May to October and has a guide-to-client ratio of 1:6 to ensure personalized attention. Larger groups can also be accommodated.

Start your full-day tour at Yosemite Lodge, located across from Yosemite Falls, where you’ll meet your guides in the morning. From here, hop on a shuttle bus to Glacier Point and listen to informative narration about Yosemite National Park during the 1-hour ride.

Your hike begins at Glacier Point, where you are treated to iconic views of prominent landmarks such as Half Dome and Cloud’s Rest, as well as three waterfalls: Yosemite Falls, Vernal Fall and Nevada Fall. Your guides discuss the historical significance of the viewpoint and other park features while you have plenty of photo opportunities.

Then, follow a guide on foot along mostly downhill terrain that takes you on a scenic 8.5-mile (13.7-km) route with a total 3,179-foot (969-meter) elevation loss; you'll have breaks to refuel. Your first 1.5-mile (2.4-km) push descends 800 vertical feet (244 meters) in elevation to the top of the 370-foot (113-meter) Illilouette Fall, where you can catch your breath before continuing your hike.

The next 1 to 1.5 miles (1.6 to 2.4 km) takes your small group up a moderately strenuous section of switchbacks that ascend about 300 vertical feet (91 meters). Once the switchbacks are conquered, the trail flattens out for an easy and scenic 1 to 1.5 miles to the next junction — the Panorama Trail.

Running along this eastern point in the valley, the Panorama Trail offers postcard-worthy views that live up to its name. The following mile — a strenuous downhill series of 20 or so switchbacks — drops you 700 feet (213 meters) in elevation to the outflow of Nevada Fall.

After a lunch break atop the 594-foot (181-meter) waterfall, continue with your guides on one of two trails, depending on your group’s preference. A less strenuous 3.5-mile (5.6-km) trek down the John Muir Trail offers higher vantage points with views of Nevada and Vernal falls, as well as of Half Dome’s south face and the abrupt uprising of Liberty Cap. Or, opt for a slightly shorter route of 2.5 miles (4 km) down the granite staircases of the Mist Trail, which runs alongside the scenic Merced River and its 594-foot Nevada Fall and 317-foot (97-meter) Vernal Fall.

Both trails lead to restrooms and running water near the footbridge at the base of Vernal Fall. From here, it’s about a 1-mile downhill hike on a steep, paved trail to Happy Isles, where you catch a shuttle bus back to Yosemite Lodge before you bid farewell to your guides.

Much like in the summer, the Yosemite Valley Floor offers hours of exploration within the more level and easier accessible areas of the Yosemite Valley. In addition to providing you with natural and geological history, this tour will highlight some of the lesser known winter ‘gems’ around the valley. The Yosemite Valley Floor Loop is a customizable tour that is great for families with younger children and/or families looking for an easier hike but can be customized to be more strenuous if desired.

This trip is fully customizable and offers a huge variety of activities to choose from including awesome sight-seeing around Yosemite Valley, as well as short hikes that are accessible to anyone and everyone, even during the winter. This trip can be customized to be more of a leisurely tour or pushed to a longer more moderate hike depending on interest and fitness level.

Options for the Yosemite Valley Custom Adventure may include:
• Hike to the base of 2425’ tall Yosemite Falls which, under certain weather conditions, features an enormous snow cone at the base. If lucky, clients may also get to watch as snow lightly drops hundreds of feet from the cliffs settling in a pile at the bottom.
• Frazil Ice is another amazing phenomenon that only occurs this time of year. If the conditions are just right, some of the rivers in Yosemite Valley fill with icy, undulating slush.
• A variety of museums offer terrific and informative history lessons about Yosemite National Park including the Ansel Adams Gallery, the Art Center and the Yosemite Village Indian Museum.
• Hike to the top of Vernal and/or Nevada Fall via the John Muir Trail. Great View!
• “Oh My Gosh Point” on the way up the Yosemite Falls Trail for an amazing view of Yosemite Valley.
• The famous 5-star Majestic Hotel is always a site to see in the winter as well!

We try to make the most out of the day, so please let us know what you would like to see and experience, and we will try to fit all of your recommendations into one jam-packed day of excitement!

Guides carry first aid kits, water purification methods, toilet paper (for emergencies), suntan lotion and bug repellent. Please plan to bring your own lunch, snacks, water bottles, etc. Remember, profits from our guided trips go towards supporting our youth summer camp program.

Note: While the valley floor is generally clear of snow in the winter, if there is a considerable amount of snow, LA will provide snowshoe gear and instruction. 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. That being said, some of Yosemite most unique winter phenomena occur in less than ideal weather conditions!
