Moderate to difficult backpacking trip through Yosemite over 7-8 days. AMAZING views and well marked trails.
The trail is approximately 33 miles and can be done in 3-4 days, but 5-6 gives time to enjoy the scenery and have chill time, with a day for driving on each end.
rough backpacking plan:
Day 1: Start off Cathedral Lake Trailhead to Lower Cathedral Lake (3.5 mi/5.6 km).
Day 2: Lower Cathedral Lake to Sunrise Lakes (6.3 mi/10.1 km). You'll start with a half mile trek back to the John Muir Trail.
Day 3: Sunrise Lakes to Cloud’s Rest (5.8 mi/9.3 km).
Day 4: Clouds Rest to Little Yosemite Valley (5.8 mi/9.3 km).
Day 5: Little Yosemite Valley To Half Dome and back (7 mi/11.3 km)
