In 2006 and 2007, we led small groups of hardy backpackers on week-long trips to California's Sierra Nevada.

Here's your chance to view this spectacular mountain range for yourself. This aggressive loop backpack trip from the Lodgepole Visitor Center delves through the backcountry of Kings Canyon and Sequoia National Parks, building by slow degrees to a grand climax of a High Sierra crossing at Elizabeth Pass, and winding down again with another gradual passage down the north wall of the Kaweah River canyon. Glacier-carved cliffs and mountains, deep canyons, wildlife, and giant sequoias - this hike has it all! We think this trip is going to be the best yet! Join us for this amazing trip to one of the crown jewels of the American wilderness system.

We will apply for a permit for twelve backpackers. A few slots are already filled! Contact us right away to be added to the list!
