Yosemite is open and we are running tours. If someone in your party is higher-risk or concerned about being in a confined space with other people, you are advised to consider scheduling a private tour. Although we are taking all the precautions possible to reduce the chance of Coronavirus infection you will be touring at your own risk. Buses will be running at normal capacity. Since 6' distancing is not possible on the bus, CDC guidelines strongly suggest that guests wear a face mask while on the bus.

Yosemite Full Moon Hike Experience

Until the shelter in place order for California is lifted Discover Yosemite will not be operating tours or other transportation. Additionally our office hours will be 7-11 AM (PST) Monday-Friday during this time.

My favorite Yosemite tour is the full moon hike to Sentinel Dome. It’s a fairly easy grade, and nobody had a problem with climbing the steep rock to get to the dome, even though some of the group were in their 70s! It does take a bit of agility, however people will help you up.

Once you are on top of Sentinel Dome, it feels like you’ve just climbed a mountain! The view of Half Dome from Sentinel is spectacular – you get to experience the gorgeous sunset and then wait for the lovely moon to rise while enjoying snacks and wine.

Other groups will likely be up there–people visiting Yosemite from all over the world. It’s fun to get to know them and experience the moon rise together.
