Snowshoe in Yosemite

Tuolumne Grove

Our Yosemite Snowshoe Tour of the Giant Sequoia grove is an unforgettable and surreal experience. The path is a short, level, and easy walk that’s perfect for the novice hiker, enabling guests to stand beneath the towering, ancient behemoths in the seclusion of Yosemite’s wintertime environment. The snowshoeing itself is easy to learn and offers the rare chance to get into the less-traveled winter wonderland of the Yosemite backcountry! All snowshoe tours are private.

Yosemite Snowshoe Tour: Giant Sequoia Grove

Meeting Location: Tuolumne Grove parking at 6,200′
High Point: Tuolumne Grove at 5,800′

Winter is an amazing time to take in Yosemite’s rare groves of Giant Sequoia trees. As the summer/spring crowds clear out, the Tuolumne Grove becomes a secluded, peaceful hiking trail, accentuated by the towering Sequoia trees reaching out of view. The Giant Sequoias grow up to nearly 300 feet high/26 feet in diameter, making the the largest living things on Earth, and can live to be over 3,000 years old. If there is a considerable amount of snow on the ground, this trip becomes a peaceful snowshoe through the snow blanketed groves.

Until further notice, the Merced Grove is closed to park visitors, so this day hike will include only the Tuolumne Grove.

Guides carry first aid kits, water purification methods, toilet paper (for emergencies), suntan lotion and bug repellent. Please plan to bring your own lunch, snacks, water bottles, etc. Remember, profits from our guided trips go towards supporting our youth summer camp program.

NOTE: Should weather, fire, and/or delayed seasonal openings affect the chosen itinerary, a different itinerary will be offered. You will be kept in contact throughout this process. That being said, some of Yosemite most unique winter phenomena occur in less than ideal weather conditions!

I did a private one-on-one hike with a guide to Half Dome. This was such an amazing experience! The guide was very knowledgeable regarding Yosemite, and I realized I wouldn't have completed it without the help of the guide. His expertise and calmness during the cables really enabled me to push through and complete this amazing hike!”

I booked a guided hike for Clouds Rest as I was unsuccessful in my ballot for Half Dome. My friend was unable to make it so I decided to book a guided hike for myself. From beginning to end, Lasting Adventures was great. They replied to me quickly, and my guide was excellent! He offered me hiking poles in case I hadn't taken any and had plenty other essentials on hand.
