Since 1991 we've been offering Yosemite Hiking Adventures throughout the park. All of our day trips are privately arranged and your personal guide will cater the days to your own personal interests and abilities. Choose an interpretive day focusing on natural and cultural history walks to famous landmarks, or set out for a more challenging hiking day on one of Yosemite's long trails. Browse our itineraries below highlighting some of the Best Yosemite Hikes to choose from, and feel free to call us at 800-231-4575 for customized trips and tours catered to you and your group.
Yosemite Hiking with a naturalist guide 'off the beaten path' through Yosemite Valley's majestic landscape of waterfalls, Granite monoliths, cascading streams, and lush meadows. Learn about the park with a guide who knows it intimately, and looks forward to sharing it with you. The days are all privately arranged and catered to your personal interest and abilities.
Yosemite's South Rim sits over 2,000 feet above the valley floor and commands stunning overlooks of Half Dome, El Capitan, the Yosemite High Country, and into the deep valley below. Join one of our private interpretive guides for a day exploring the mid-mountain forests and impressive overlooks, all catered to your own interests and abilities.
The Mariposa Grove of Giant Sequoias and Glacier Point area pair well as a full-day outing full of old-growth forests, sweeping panoramic vistas and granite domes. Learn about the park with a guide who knows it intimately, and looks forward to sharing it with you. The days are all privately arranged and catered to your personal interest and abilities.
The Panorama Trail above Yosemite Valley is a true classic! The 8.5-mile trail offers stunning views of Yosemite Valley, Half Dome, Vernal and Nevada Falls, beginning at the iconic Glacier Point and ending in Yosemite Valley 3,000 feet below.
Looming 4,800 feet above Yosemite Valley is the "Crown Jewel" of the Sierra, Half Dome. This granite monolith has captured the imagination of explorers, climbers and artists alike and is the most sought-after summit in Yosemite National Park. However, at over 17 miles round-trip and with thousands of feet in elevation gain and loss, a day-trip to the summit is certainly not a giveaway. For those that complete the journey, the spectacular views of Yosemite Valley and the Yosemite High Country are worth every hard-earned step. SYMG has been leading Half Dome trips for over 20 years and recruiting one of our experienced guides is perhaps the best way to maximize your chance of standing on the summit of Half Dome.
