Activity Notes

Follow in the steps of John Muir as we take his ~220-mile namesake trail from the Yosemite Valley to the top of Mt. Whitney (14,494'), traversing the beautiful and scenic high Sierra's. Highlights of the trek include multiple >10,000' passes, alpine lakes, jaw-dropping scenery, and the summit of Mt Whitney. The 5 to 6 participants will need to be in good physical condition and have experience in at least one 100-mile (or greater) trek and at least one 12,000' peak or pass. We will be traveling light and fast: ~20 miles per day with elevation gains > 5000' on some days and a majority of the hike taking place at over 8000'.

Outing dates are tentative pending obtaining the necessary permit. More information on dates can be expected in mid-February.

The cost of the outing is $591 to $722 (depending on the number of participants) and does not include airfare. A $120 (member) or $240 (nonmember) deposit will be required upon acceptance.
