About the Trip

Get away from it all to wander the woods, learn a little natural history, and gather around the campfire at the Yosemite Bug Rustic Mountain Resort.

Just 25 miles outside Yosemite Valley, the Yosemite Bug Rustic Mountain Resort and hostel is the perfect base to explore the great outdoors. Take a hike on the Vernal Falls Mist Trail while you stop to smell the flowers over a picnic lunch along the way. Learn a little local history at the Mariposa Mine and Mineral Museum. Gather around the campfire to share stories and roast marshmallows before settling down for the night in our private cabins or dorm cabins. It’s a hostelling experience your troop will never forget!
