A stunning 4-hour ride to the top of Burro Pass where you can look out on Summit Lake, the peaks of northern Yosemite, alpine lakes, and the mountains of Virginia Lakes Canyon.
Stunning Views Of Blue Lake
This horseback ride takes you up into the Virginia Lakes Canyon where you see stunning views of Blue Lake, you ride right by a historic miner’s cabin, and stop at beautiful Cooney Lake. At Cooney Lake, you dismount and have a few minutes to explore the shoreline and waterfall, before making your return to the pack station.
