Women's Backpacking Weekend (Yosemite)

Join us for a "sole" sister weekend excursion to beautiful Yosemite National Park. Our goal for this women's only backpacking trip is to provide a fun and comfortable space for you to try your hand at new skills, expand comfort zones, develop friendships, create memories, and crush being a woman in the great outdoors. We'll provide all of the gear you will need as well as a team of experienced female leaders who can't wait to spend the weekend with you. While no previous experience is necessary, you can expect to be physically challenged as we hike 8-12 miles each day over steep terrain with a 20-30 pound backpack.
