Program #13977ENZ
5 Days | 4 Nights
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Moderately Challenging
Love to learn in a small-group setting? This collection of programs has at most 10-24 participants.
See our Small Group programs.
EasyFor people looking to exercise their minds more than their bodies. There’s 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.
Those who really want to know Yosemite must explore its wonders on foot. Follow in the footsteps of pioneers like John Muir, the father of Yosemite National Park, and Galen Clark, its Guardian, not to mention the Native Americans who first inhabited this enchanting land. Explore Yosemite’s unique glacially-carved valleys, granite monoliths, waterfalls and lush meadows and hear on-site lectures. If you’ve long yearned for a chance to see the treasures of Yosemite National Park away from the madding tourist crowd, this is it!


Highlights

• With instructors who are expert Yosemite hikers, trek three major trails in the Glacier Point, Mariposa Grove and Yosemite Valley areas of Yosemite National Park.
• Learn about the geology, flora, fauna and human history of this Queen of the National Parks.
• Explore the complexities of managing Yosemite National Park from the perspective of those who have worked in the park.

Activity Notes

Each day, choose from a learning hike (less intensity, more education) or a challenge hike (similar location, but with increased distance, elevation change and speed.) Hiking 5-10 miles a day, uneven terrain. Elevations of 8,000 feet.

Coordinated by Evergreen Conference Center Oakhurst.
