Yosemite in a day? Oh, yes we can!
Yosemite Valley to Glacier Point via the Four Mile Trail
4.7 miles EACH way plus a walk around Glacier Point, so figure 11-12 miles total for the day STRENUOUS.
4:50am arrange carpools at REI on their southside lot
5:00am sharp leave Sacramento (not waiting for stragglers unless you call and let us know)
9:45am estimated arrival at the Swinging Bridge restroom
This allows for a quick breakfast stop and time to park.
The Glacier Point shuttle (the one that goes by the Four Mile trailhead, does not start until mid June so we won't be able to use it...dang!) Try to park at Camp Four and walk across the valley floor. If not, ride the shuttle to stop number 7 or 8 and walk across from there. Get a map!!
10:00pm estimated return to Sacramento
Breakfast on the way somewhere along Hwy 99
Packed lunch, snacks, electrolytes, layers, etc. packed lunch
Dinner on the way home TBD
Bring money for breakfast ($10), dinner ($20), carpool ($35), entrance fee ($5 if there are four in your car) about $70 all together.
We hope to hike clear to the top to Glacier Point and have time to look around, but if you get tired you can stop at any point along the way and hang out somewhere beautiful until we get back. You'll have to communicate with your car group.
