Are you a backpacker with strong endurance and a love for adventure?

Or, are you thinking of becoming one?

You’ll rarely find a challenge as inspirational as this.

The High Sierra to Mt. Whitney trek is a 75-mile journey across Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks, which tests limits and rewards with breathtaking views, diverse ecosystems, and the non-technical summit of Mt. Whitney, the highest peak in the Lower 48.

This adventure is about more than just reaching the peak — it’s about pushing your limits, elevating your hiker’s skillset, and gaining confidence in the wilderness.
