The Hike: The hike is meant for Bay Area folks who have taken the day off and would like to do a short hike before checking into the hostel. This is an easy hike through a beautiful Sequoia grove. For route details see : CLICK HERE
Parking & Meeting Point: The trailhead is two miles (3.2 km) from Yosemite's south entrance, and the road is well marked (if you're entering Yosemite through the south gate, turn right immediately after passing the entrance gate). If the parking lot is full, the road will be closed and guarded by park personnel armed with orange vests, but they'll direct you to a lot where you can park and take a free shuttle bus the last two miles to the grove. You can also catch the shuttle from the shop around the corner from the Wawona Hotel.
After Hike Event : Dinner back at the hostel.
