Sierra Sunset Hike or Snowshoe
Offered February - May, October - December

It is easy to overlook the beauty of our local area with so much stunning scenery nearby, but we highly recommend that you experience this lovely ‘local’ hike that is steeped in history, has great potential for wildlife sightings and includes a stunning vista point. We meander through dramatic old growth forest past one of the oldest settler’s cabins in the state on our way to a stunning view of the Tuolumne River Canyon.

Many guests have spotted the magnificent Great Gray Owls (the largest owls in North America) that live in the area, giving this outing the nickname, ‘The Owl Prowl’. Deer, bear, bobcats and even fox may be seen on this classic fall hike, and be sure to bring a camera for the amazing fall light along the way. This 3.5 mile walk is a guide and guest favorite, and it is a great way to settle into lodge life upon your arrival and get to know our great guides and the beauty and history of the area.

Sunset Vista Happy Hour Tour
Offered June - September

After a great day exploring the Park, or for those just checking in, join us for our popular Sunset Tour and Happy Hour to a favorite local vista. Sunsets are typically spectacular in our area, and this relaxing 90-minute outing allows you the opportunity to view the sun setting down the Tuolumne River Canyon.

Be sure to bring a camera to capture dramatic sunset photos, and you might even catch a shot of deer, bobcats, falcons or bears as well! Our guide will do the driving while you meet fellow guests and learn about our area. We’ll provide chairs, a glass of wine (or soda) and hors d’oeuvres for you to enjoy while you savor the serenity.
