Yosemite National Park is world famous for its extraordinary views, incredible waterfalls and towering granite cliffs and domes. The Yosemite Falls/ Snow Creek Loop offers you the opportunity to experience all these wonders while avoiding the most popular and crowded places in the park. You will hike up and out of Yosemite Valley, past the incredible 2400-foot tall Yosemite Falls, to the rim of the valley where you will bask in the glorious views and spend your first night. Then enjoy a day traveling through the high country towards North Dome, offering incredible views of Yosemite Valley and the peaks of the High Sierra, then to Indian Rock and Snow Creek for your second night. The hulking granite mass of Half Dome is right in front of view and this perspective is hard to beat. Day 3 will take us back down to the valley floor along the Snow Creek Trail. Enjoy the impressive views of Tenaya Canyon, Cloud’s Rest and Mt. Watkins as you make the steep descent, arriving back in the Valley in time for lunch. Whew! A strenuous but fantastic Yosemite backpacking adventure!
