~D. Gadotti writes about our Sourdough traverse:

Magnificent!!!! Thank You , Thank you, Thank You on so many levels! First of all for telling me about this tour, I had never heard of about it from any other source. This should be one of the classic hikes of the world, up there with the West coast trail and the North coast of Kywaii Island!, here it is in my backyard !
Thank You for the care you put into preparing those camps, such loving foresight in trying to anticipate every need and want of your hikers, I particularly appreciated the latrines, so well built, away from water sources, sheltered from wind and privacy…

~Robert Young
I’ve been an avid hiker most of my life, This is THE BEST HIKE EVER!

~Cathy Hopland
My husband Jim and I enjoyed this Amazing trip , we’re looking forward to coming back again.

Family Friendly Hiking

Old Silver Mine.

Old Silver Mine.


We just hiked up with a group including 8 kids, ages 5 – 10.
It took us 3-4 hours including lunch at the lake.
They all had a great time.

There is a short, steep climb at the beginning of the hike. But there were huckleberries to entertain the kids. After that it’s quite an easy hike all the way to the lake. Then a little steep part to get up to the pass, but the kids were excited to get to the top so that was no problem. They really liked stopping at the old silver mine along the way.

The kids climbed to the summit of Misty Mountain the next day. They also had a lot of fun exploring the huge alpine basin around the lodge.
