Yosemite Valley North Rim Trek
Yosemite National Park - 3 days

This Yosemite backpacking adventure takes you along the North rim of the "incomparable valley" with some of the most spectacular mountain scenery in the world. This 3-day Yosemite hike takes us up the Yosemite Falls trail past lower and upper Yosemite Falls and along the rim of Yosemite Valley to the top of roaring Yosemite Falls where we spend the first night nearby

After a side to trip to the spectacular views of Eagle Peak, we make our way along the North rim with views down into Yosemite Valley from Yosemite Point Butress and many other vantage point along the way.

Then we get in an exciting summit of North Dome with views of Half Dome across the Valley. We also will check out a natural granite arch just off the main trail. After camping by secluded Snow Creek, we finish by hiking out the little known snow creek trail and then back by Mirror Lake into The Valley.

Along the way we enjoy grand views and whispering pine forests. On this hiking itinerary there will be plenty of time for relaxation and enjoyment of this incredible environment. A great way to see the Yosemite backcountry during the spring waterfall season.
