Mount Conness Summit (12,590)
Yosemite National Park, Sierra Nevada- 4 days

A Yosemite hiking and off-trail backpacking adventure to the summit of spectacular Mt Conness - one of the most sought after summits in Yosemite National Park.

We meet and spend the night in spectacular Tuolumne Meadows in Yosemite National Park and hike North to the scenic Young Lakes near the base of Mount Conness. From Young Lakes we summit Mt. Conness via the standard off-trail route involving steep hiking with some exposure.

Climbing Mount Conness involves basic off-trail hiking skills and is a perfect adventure for those with just a little backpacking or hiking experience. Along the way we enjoy good food, good camaraderie and stellar views. A fun and rewarding Yosemite backcountry adventure.
