Jul 30 - Aug 5
Explore the Emigrant Wilderness
More than 113,000 acres of untamed forest, the Emigrant Wilderness is off Hwy 108 on the northern border of Yosemite National Park. Our route will take us through the heart of the Emigrant wilderness, with a portion of our trek on the world famous Pacific Crest Trail.
In 1975, Congress designated the Emigrant Wilderness a National Monument, but most of the area was protected as a Forest Service Primitive Area since the 1920’s. The Emigrant Wilderness is a glaciated landscape of great scenic beauty. The northeastern third of the Wilderness is dominated by volcanic ridges and peaks; the remaining areas consist of many sparsely vegetated, granitic ridges interspersed with numerous lakes for swimming or fishing, and meadows.
