Senior, Ambassador
Explore the hanging valleys in Mono Basin and the Silver Divide section of the John Muir Trail on this 40-mile trip to the Eastern Sierras. The itinerary is open so girls can plan (in January) the number of day hikes they would like to include in their adventure. This is a moderate to strenuous trip due to its duration, mileage and two 12,000 foot passes.
Estimated cost: $150
Trip pre-requisites:
