Top-Rated Guided Backpacking Trips in the West

“We backpacked with a group of 7 other people from ‘Backpacker’s Camp’ to Mae Lake, up to Mt Hoffman, Cloud’s Rest, and finally completed the trip with an amazing last day, summiting Half Dome at sunrise! It. Was. Incredible!! Our guides immediately made us feel comfortable and excited. Their passion for the wilderness, people, and their career as a guide is contagious. If you have the chance to go on a Lasting Adventures trip – please do it!”TripAdvisor, Sept 2021
