Backpack Yosemite (OATS)

Outdoor adventure trips for new Cal students

This Yosemite trip is an OATS favorite destination. We’ll be headed to this spectacular national park for 6 days. The park provides us with amazing scenery, miles of remote trails and plenty of lakes, mountains and meadows to explore. This trip is great for you whether you’ve never been to Yosemite or whether you grew up visiting the valley each year as a child.
