Join us on a guide and guest favorite to the geographic center of the park. You’ll enjoy 360-degree views of Yosemite National Park and hike past one of the most beautiful alpine lakes in the high country. As we leave May Lake, we’ll also leave the crowds behind as we climb to the alpine home of the curious yellow-bellied marmot and prairie falcon. From the summit of Mount Hoffmann, we’ll see a unique and spectacular perspective of Half Dome and the High Country.

Throughout the hike, you’ll enjoy dramatic, memorable views of the pristine Yosemite landscape. This trip is the perfect way to get perspective on the grandeur of Yosemite and to round out your connection to this amazing national park.
