Historic Groveland Happy Hour Walking Tour

Historic Groveland Happy Hour Walking Tour

The sleepy town of Groveland, CA located just outside Yosemite National Park was once (twice and even three times) a bustling metropolis of up to 20,000 people! Join us on a fun and historic guided walking tour that explores the town's booms and busts as well as the pioneers that shaped its legacy. We'll meet at the Echo Adventure's Yosemite Basecamp and enjoy presentation and light snack before getting started! During our half-mile walk through town, we'll duck into other local shops, hotels, and restaurants along the way to see how they have transformed Groveland's wild west era mercantiles, brothels, and saloons. We'll end our journey at the 170-year-old Groveland Hotel with a quick nip at their Bourbon Bar & Taproom before we explore their historic wine cellar! You may even get to meet Lyle, gold miner and hotel guest since 1925 - umm, yeah, he's a ghost! We'll say goodbye with plenty of time that evening to enjoy shopping, dining or live music in downtown Groveland!

Our Classic Camping/Hiking Adventure is a traditional way of visiting Yosemite without the “roughing-it” experience of a backpacking trip. We will shuttle out daily from our campsite, with daypacks and lunch in hand, to our selected hiking destinations. As the #1 guide service in Yosemite, our tours highlight a variety of iconic and popular features throughout the park as well as some of the lesser known gems. We will hike to the top of giant waterfalls, along glacially polished granite, through alpine meadows full of wildflowers, and past giant sequoia trees. We will stand atop granite domes and reach the top of a major summit. Along the way, your professional and knowledgeable guide will share the history of Yosemite as well as information about the geology, natural history, plants, and animals of the area.
