Yosemite Summit Trek
El Capitan, North Dome, Eagle Peak & Yosemite Falls
This trek follows a less populated trail through a beautiful pine forest to the top of North America’s tallest waterfall, rising 2,425 feet above the Valley floor. On the way to camp we will also summit North Dome (which we actually walk down to from our position!) From the top of Yosemite Falls, we leave camp behind for the day and take light packs to the more moderate hike of El Capitan. The granite monolith is about 3,000 feet from base to summit, offering stunning views of Taft Point, Dewey Point, Half Dome, and Clouds Rest. On the way back from the summit, we will take the extra mile to the summit of Eagle Peak, which has views even more astounding than El Capitan itself! Eagle Peak is the highest of the Three Brothers, a rock formation, above Yosemite Valley. John Muir considered the view from the summit to be "most comprehensive of all the views" available from the north wall! This Trek offers the chance to see Yosemites wonders from above the crowds!
