High Sierra Camp Saddle Trips

For a more thorough back country experience, join one of this company’s organized saddle trips — with mules. 4-6 day treks leave from Tuolumne Stables and are led by experienced guide/packers who handle the details. They pack all the gear, feed and care for the stock and provide park pointers and lore along the way.

The maximum weight limit is 225 pounds per saddle (including rider). Personal necessities (15 pound limit per person) are carried on a pack mule. These trips are usually available July-September when weather and trail conditions permit.

NOTE: Horses are available beginning Memorial Day weekend.

They offer shorter trips for the less experienced, or the people who just want a short trip. Day rides are the way to go if you want to have a longer ride, and still have time to have a picnic, and fish or hike around the wilderness.
