The great valley! Waterfalls, giant sequoias, huge granite walls, stone tunnels, and lakes are just a few sights that come to mind when you hear the words #yosemitenationalpark ... See MoreSee Less

These photos were recently taken by Roving Ranger Michael VanLuvender from the Traveler Loop. One of the most rugged and remote trails in the Park, this loop is sure to challenge you. During the 10 mile hike, you will ascend and descend three 3,000 footers. The total elevation gained going over these three peaks is 3,700 ft which is only 400 ft less than Katahdin from Katahdin Stream Campground.
Take note of the difference between the rocks found on this trail compared to the rocks found on Katahdin. On the Traveler's you will find Rhyolite, a fine-grained volcanic stone formed about 400 million years ago.
Do not underestimate the difficulty of this trail. Plan 8-10 hours to complete the whole loop. Much of this trail is exposed and we hope that all hikers take the weather report seriously before attempting the Traveler's. There is no reliable water source on the trail. We recommend traversing in a counter-clockwise direction. Park your vehicle at South Branch Pond Campground. ... See MoreSee Less
I miss those days!
This is one of my favorite hikes. Very challenging. And once you start, you have to commit. No escape plan, really! But so beautiful. Highly recommend!!!
This was my most difficult yet I rate it as the best and most memorable hike I ever did!
Fantastic hike ! Definitely relentless but worth every step ....stunning
We hiked this a few years ago, it was very challenging. Bring lots of water and snacks
Loved the Travelers Loop.
A great hike—my husband and I did the loop a few years ago in 90 degree weather—would love to do it again 🙂
Just do it! Amazing hike!
Started up this trail years ago. My wife and friend found so many blueberries they dumped out their water bottles and filled them with blueberries. Needless to say we turned around and did not get far.
This is a fabulous hike! Have done it 3 times.....so far.
One of my favorites!
Excited to hike it again next month!
North Traveler summit just this last weekend! It was windy, wet, and cold but the sun poked through just enough times to catch some of the views!
Hardest hike I have ever done in Baxter. 11 hours, lots of blueberries in August.
Done this loop 3x. Writer is accurate - remote, rugged, beautiful, and no water resupply points. 8-10 hrs is a good estimate. The last time took 11 hrs on day when it reached 92* with high humidity. GORGEOUS views
The best trail. Chris Robinson.

We LOVED this hike, didn’t we Tyler Leskowsky and Kyle Leskowsky?
On my list to do!
Look carefully and you can see us down on the lake
We still have a few spots open for our Youth Rec Team! This program is a great chance for kids to develop their climbing skills in a group environment while having a ton of fun in the gym. Go to the link below for more information or to sign up today!

The Wassataquoik Lake Trail is one of our longest trails (14.3 miles one way!) starting from Nesowadnehunk Campground and ending at Russell Pond Campground. Hike all the way to Russell in one go or take your time and stay at one of several backcountry lean-tos on the way. This is the only trail that runs through this part of the Park giving you the opportunity to see a quiet and unique part of the Park. The area has a rich logging history and it isn't uncommon to come across abandoned logging tools.
The trail does not have much elevation gain but due to its length will take about 7-8 hours. Please note, caution should be taken when crossing streams. ... See MoreSee Less
My husband and i will be there at the end of the month. Two nights at Wassataquoik stream lean-tos, and 2 nights on the lake island lean-to! I’ve canoed the lake a few times, but have never stayed in that lean-to. Excited to say the least!!❤️
Cool! Love Nesowadnehunk Campground as a starting point.
This is SUCH a great backpacking trip. One of my faves in the park 😍😍😍😍
We did this one two years ago and made it a week long trip. Loved center pond and Russell is always a favorite. Last year we went in from the opposite side. Both great hikes
The Wassataquoik Lake trail is fantastic, passing Center pond, Little and Big Wassataquoik Lake. The photos shown are from the former Tracy Horse, now Wassataquoik Stream trail.
Ohhh, that sounds so lovely. We visited 7 years ago (with 3 boys, 9,12 and 14). Camped 4 nights, hiked to Baxter peak. Hiked Mt Turner, and saw moose at Sandy Stream Pond. Kayaked in Daicey pond. Just so amazing. This hike though? Hashtag goals for hubby and me. (I refuse to do the actual hashtag, lol)
We recently spent 5 nights out to Russell and back. 7-8 hours really doesn't give you time to see much ;)
Hiked into Wassataquoik Lake from Nesowadnehunk - saw one person over 3 days. Loons, eagles, moose, waterfalls, more critters than I can name - and a meteor shower! Wicked nice new lean-to at Wassa Lake.
Hiked in there in the eighties beautiful place.
Heading there in September! Can’t wait!
Cool, need to check this out!
Are reservations needed for the lean-tos?
We started at Nesowadnehunk to Russell. Unfortunately picked the wrong time of year , mosquitos were insane
Anyone caught any arctic char there?
Bud Utecht this would be fun!

Get up to see the Sword In The Stone this summer !
The Guardian Knight Awaits you with a nice approach hike to a perch, a staircase climb along a ridge carved with images of their order, from 1607, and a final pitch over a roof to anchors for a swing into the Vault of the Knight's Of Christ.
Vermont State Archaeologists confirmed the carvings on the waterfront leading to the mountain pass. I am working on getting a crew together to look around inside and photograph the interior for a film documentary. Anyone with Vertical Hauling/Camera Experience is encouraged to help.
Mount Washington Valley Ice Fest is feeling fantastic.
