 The Yosemite Mountaineering School and Guide Service, operated by Delaware North Companies Parks & Resorts at Yosemite, announces a new guided backpacking trip available this summer in Yosemite National Park.

The new three-day “Yosemite Valley Rim Adventure” is a great opportunity for park visitors to have an introduction to backpacking while enjoying the iconic views and hiking trails in Yosemite. The trip takes backpackers on a lesser-known hiking trail that starts on the historic Big Oak Flat Trail. After the first day hiking, the group will spend the night camping on the top of El Capitan. The second dnc-yosemite-013014night of the trip is spent above Yosemite Falls, which is the highest waterfall in the United States. The third day consists of hiking down the Yosemite Falls Trail to Yosemite Valley.

The “Yosemite Valley Rim Adventure” costs $375 per person with a group of four or more backpackers. Permits, backpacking meals as well as tent, stove and water filter rentals are included in the price. The “Yosemite Valley Rim Adventure” trips are scheduled June 6, June 13 and September 5, 2014.

In addition to guided backpacking trips, the Yosemite Mountaineering School and Guide Service offers world-class rock climbing and instruction, private guided climbs, custom and group hikes and cross-country skiing throughout Yosemite’s extensive wilderness. The school has operated in Yosemite National Park since 1969 under special permit by the National Park Service.
