One of the most comfortable ways to see Yosemite is by adventuring daily and returning to a resort-style lodge at night for private and cozy accommodations. Rush Creek Lodge provides a relaxed, yet sophisticated experience in a hillside woodland setting at the Highway 120 West entrance to Yosemite National Park. The modern-day active traveler will appreciate the opportunity to venture out daily and explore the different landscapes followed by a nightly retreat to this top-notch resort complete with a large pool, hot-tubs, dining options, on-site activities, and other amenities.
Every day your guides will meet you at Rush Creek Lodge and shuttle you, day packs in hand, to selected hiking destinations. This tour highlights a variety of iconic and popular features throughout the park as well as some of the lesser known gems. You'll hike to the top of giant waterfalls, along glacially polished granite, through alpine meadows full of wildflowers, and past giant sequoia trees. Stand atop granite domes and reach the top of a major summit. Along the way, your professional and knowledgeable guide will share the history of Yosemite as well as information about the geology, natural history, plants, and animals of the area.
