Two Great Backpacking Trips in Wildest Yosemite

This e-guide bundle gives you a 20% discount on two Yosemite e-guides, a combined $29.90 value:

The Best Backpacking Trip in Yosemite” describes a 74-mile hike south of Tuolumne Meadows that hits must-see highlights including two of the park’s best summits, Clouds Rest (photo above) and Half Dome; thunderous, 594-foot-tall Nevada Fall; the mind-boggling landscapes of Tuolumne, Vogelsang, and Tenaya Lake; and remote, 11,500-foot Red Peak Pass—the highest pass reached by a trail in Yosemite.

The Prettiest, Uncrowded Backpacking Trip in Yosemite” lays out a plan for a nearly 87-mile hike through the biggest, loneliest chunk of wilderness on the Yosemite map: the vast realm north of Tuolumne Meadows, where 12,000-foot peaks tower above canyons strewn with rock gardens. You’ll cross three 10,000-foot passes, explore the incomparable Grand Canyon of the Tuolumne River, and tag the summit often described as having “the best 360 in Yosemite.”

Few wilderness backpacking trips in the country measure up, step for step, to a multi-day trek along the incomparable Teton Crest Trail in Wyoming’s Grand Teton National Park. Variously 35 to 39 miles, depending on the route you hike, the TCT delivers a consummate backpacking experience.

With vertiginous cliffs and peaks, numerous waterfalls and cascades, crack-riddled glaciers plastering mountainsides, and raw wilderness where a range of wildlife long gone from most of the continent thrives in shocking abundance, Glacier National Park embodies the highest aspirations of backpackers.

I felt dubious when a backcountry ranger who’s hiked every mile of trail in the Grand Canyon told me this is the park’s best backpacking trip. After all, there isn’t a mediocre hike in the canyon. Then I backpacked this route and found out he was right.
