Tahoe Adventure Company has a High Sierra Guided Backpacking Adventure for every experience level. A variety of options exist for 2 to 8 day overnight backpacking excursions. The Sierra Nevada mountain range has an extensive trail system with many trail-heads providing access to incredible terrain.
