Women's Yosemite Half Dome Backpacking

Needs a location

Hit your bucket list with all the feels on this women’s hiking and backpacking adventure! During your Yosemite Half Dome Hike adventure, tour Yosemite National Park as you climb the famous cables of Half Dome with ladies who do their own stunts. Live out every last one of those John Muir nature quotes in the backcountry of Yosemite National Park. Mountains calling? Check. Between two pines? Check. Walk with nature? Double-check.

BACKPACKING IN YOSEMITE NATIONAL PARK BACKCOUNTRY
Romp through the backcountry on a demanding, yet epic backpacking trip. Meet your new woman crushes in the Yosemite Valley as the landscape gives way to mountains, waterfalls, and a piney perfume that’ll make Yankee Candle totally jelly. Mother Nature swiped ALL THE WAY right. Leave the phone on airplane mode to immerse yourself in stunning national park backcountry over the course of four epic days. Climb steep, challenging trails to look down upon the Valley with a panoramic view that includes Mt. Starr King, Half Dome, Nevada Falls, Illilouette Falls, and plenty of ant-sized tourists with tiny selfie sticks.

THE HALF DOME CABLES: HIKING TO THE TOP
Fuel up for the real MVP—the famous cables of Half Dome! Blast that hiker booty (and bring plenty of water) while ascending 500 feet up a .5 mile of steps carved into the rock. Then, the real fun begins. It’s a 400-foot gain up the Half Dome cables with some points at 70%+ grades. Pace your footwork on wooden slabs spaced out on the climb as you get the upper body workout of a lifetime. Worth it? HELL YES!

BACKPACKING EQUIPMENT PROVIDED
Don’t have backpacking equipment, but can Beastmaster the stairs? Perfect. Explorer Chick has you covered with:
• a backpack
• sleeping bag
• sleeping pad
• shared tent
All you need to do is show up for this Yosemite Half Dome Hike to backpack like a boss and get that National Parks bucket list checked.

ADVENTURE HIGHLIGHTS
• Backpack 4 days/3 nights exploring Yosemite National Park including views of El Cap, Mt. Starr King, Half Dome, Nevada Falls, and Illilouette Falls
• Climb the famous cables of Half Dome in Yosemite as the sunsets over the Valley.
• Share stories of the day while chowing down on a yummy backcountry dinner with your Explorer Chick sisters.
• Enjoy down time at camp to read a book, lizard on a river rock, take a chilly dip, or sneak in a nap.
• Disconnect to reconnect! Leave behind the constant contact and use your phone solely for capturing moments.
• Simply show up to a fully-planned backpacking trip. We’ll take care of everything including snagging the nearly impossible to obtain permits.
• Relax with a comprehensive itinerary that makes the logistics, permits, navigation, meal planning, gear, and everything in-between easy.
• Geek out with supportive and encouraging Explorer Chicks on a private,
