See our Small Group programs.
EasyFor people looking to exercise their minds more than their bodies. Minimal walking and not too many stairs.
ModerateThese programs get you on your feet and include activities such as walking up to a mile in a day through a city and standing in a museum for a few hours.
ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding, and rewarding, programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.

Have booked the May 4-9, 2014 adventure. Exploring transportation options from either Sacramento or Oakland airports to the Tallman Hotel... hmmm?

Still looking for transportation from Sacramento on May 4, 2014.... anyone renting a car?

Vincent Gage Sep 11, 2013 at 05:59 PM

We're hoping to tour Yosemite before the program on Oct. 6th. Any suggestions on best route to get to Upper Lake from there?

Karen Ewing May 03, 2013 at 08:27 AM

Will be participating in the Oct 6, 2013 program. We have not booked air yet and are looking for ride-share folks from either SF or Oakland to the Tallman Hotel. Please let us know if you have interest.

I posted on the general discussion board before I figured out how to post specifically for my program. I am looking forward to participating in the October program. Was there a particular aspect of this program that you really really enjoyed? It all sounds great, and everyone is different, I enjoy hearing other perspectives.

I shall be driving from Sacramento Airport to the Tallman Hotel on Sunday, May 6. If you need a ride, please let me know.
