Clark Range Loop

Yosemite National Park, California, United States
40 miles
Early in 2010 I ran across an old Backpacker article describing a loop through southern Yosemite's Clark Range circling Merced and Triple Divide Peaks. The trip included high passes, enough mileage for a weeklong trip, and a distinct dearth of people -- what's not to like?So I sent in my permit application and started training.This hike proved to be a Sierran classic: granite-rimmed lakes, thick forests and open meadows, fields of talus...

Rancheria Falls and LeConte Point

19.7 miles
It's pretty early in the season for Yosemite backpacking, but Hetch Hetchy is free and clear of snow so I decided to head out for the weekend and check out the wildflowers and waterfalls. My goal was to hike to Rancheria Falls on Saturday morning, set up camp, and then bag LeConte Point in the afternoon. Sunday I'd hike out and get back to the Bay Area with plenty of time for...

A lot to do in 4 days for us, but we had a great time. Lots of snattle rakes in Pate Valley and on the trail. more than i cared to see. The climb out is brutal going up to White Wolf, but we made it in pretty good time. lots of water to play in too, cold though.

12.1 miles
Our original plans for the weekend were for a mellow family backpack with the girls but when the girls started to bail we changed plans and headed out to the Eastern Sierra. After leaving San Jose at 6am we arrived in Bridgeport at 12pm to pick up our wilderness permits at the ranger station.  Unfortunately(or maybe serendipitously) our first choice of the Green Creek trailhead had filled up with 40 people by 8am...

Vogelsang High Sierra Camp Loop

23 miles
Although I had heard about Yosemite's High Sierra Camps (HSC), I had never been to one.  A couple months back, I made a reservation for Vogelsang HSC for Sept 6th, the last night of their 2008 season.  The weather turned out to be perfect, cool and sunny.   Day 1 – To Vogelsang - I started the hike at 9:15 am from the backpackers car park before Tuolumne Meadows Lodge.  Vogelsang can be reached via Rafferty Creak trail (6...

Vernal Falls Loop - Yosemite National Park

4.8 miles
Hiking Mist Trail to Vernal Fall is one of the most popular activity in Yosemite Valey during the summer time. However, some people might feel it difficult due to the steepness and tall and wet stairs of the trail at the final approach to Vernal Fall. Hiking down could be more challenged for those folks. Here is a alternative. Instead of hiking down from the same Mist Trail you came from, you...

Yosemite Snowshoe: Dewey Point
by navratil on Apr 03, 2010
Yosemite West, California, United States
7.7 miles
This year, the family decided to spend the Easter weekend in Yosemite.  While looking for a good hike (trail not closed or covered in feet of snow, either a dozen+ miles or 1500+ feet or so, not something I've already done a bunch of times), I realized we'd be heading out the last weekend that Badger Pass was open -- giving me a great chance to finally go snowshoeing.  I asked around...

Mount Dana (13,053 ft.) Summit

Yosemite National Park, California, United States
5.3 miles
Mount Dana is the second highest mountain in Yosemite Natioanal Park and also one of the easiest accessible high mountain in the park. However, with the elevation of 13,053 feet, it is never an easy hike to summit the mountain. The trailhead to the summit is located at the parking lot next to the Tioga Pass kiosk. From there, it is a 3-mile one-way trip to the top of Mount Dana and gains...
