Mosquitoes can be present and vicious along this trek. So bring deet. I will have a bottle or two to share if you forget.

The Hike: The hike is an out-and-back & strenuous. This is not for easy hikers and it's important to keep a reasonable pace to be able to return before sunset. I'll have my GPS and will remind people if they are too slow and should perhaps head back before reaching the peak. If we can keep an over all pace ~ 2mph we should be OK with plenty of time to enjoy the view at cloud's rest. For route details see : CLICK HERE
Parking & Meeting Point: Ideally most of us will be carpooling and departing from the Yosemite Bug Hostel at 8AM. It takes ~1:45 minutes to reach the trail head. Its long but scenic. If coming from your hotel or other accommodation then either meet us at the hostel to carpool or meet us at the trail head (click next to the balloon icon above for map location). The parking lot right next to the trail head (it will be labeled as either Cloud's Rest or Sunrise TH) may be filled and so continue east on 120 till you can park on the side of the road and then walk on over.
After Hike Event : For guests of the bug, dinner back at the hostel and for others, you can try to come back with us if few but otherwise I'd recommend another place since it may be crowded at the bug.
