Description
Get out there and experience nature the way you are supposed to. Don't just drive through the park. Get up close, and personal breathing in the fresh air. Hike through Yosemite Park with an expert guide, for a once in a lifetime experience.

The beginner hike is a nice relaxing hike along a gentle trail. It takes about 4-5 hours to do 4-5 miles. You may see Mirror Lake, Yosemite Falls, Sentinel Dome, and or Taft Point. Bring a lunch, and you can picnic, alongside a stream, or perhaps on a scenic lookout.

The moderate hike is 5-6 hours, and 5-6 miles, with a little more work, but not much, can still be done with beginners. You may see Wapama Falls, Hetch Hetchy, Inspiration Point, Lambert Dome,Dog Lake, and more, or less, depending on the routes taken.

If you choose the intermediate hike, be ready for a little more work. You will be going up to higher elevations, to see more dramatic views. You will see Glacier Point, the gorgeous 317 ft. high, Vernal Falls, and more. It takes 6-7 hours to travel 8 miles, up to 2000 feet.

For the physically fit and adventurous, the challenging trail is for them. Hike up to 3000 feet, about 10 miles in 7-8 hours. You will climb Mt. Hoffman, being very proud of yourself, and rewarded with spectacular views. The strenuous hike is evne more rewarding. Have fun!
