About Xtreme Hike
Welcome to Xtreme Hike Yosemite 2019. Xtreme Hike is about reaching new heights – physically and philanthropically. It’s a journey of passion, determination and personal triumph, as much as it’s an opportunity to make a difference in the lives of people with Cystic Fibrosis. This year, the Sacramento Chapter is excited to join efforts once again with the Northern California Chapter for Xtreme Hike Yosemite 2019! Join us on this amazing journey to see new sights and climb to higher heights.
Xtreme Hikers raise funds and awareness for the CF Foundation’s mission to find a cure for cystic fibrosis. Hikers will train for three months to prepare for this amazing journey and will commit to raise funds to benefit the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. All hikers are provided with all the tools needed to reach their goals, both on and off the trail.
In just one day, a dedicated team of Xtreme Hikers will hike to the top of El Capitan at 7,500 feet in elevation. This is a total of 22 miles roundtrip with ~4,500 feet elevation gain. The hike begins by traveling on the Yosemite Falls Trail to the top of Upper Yosemite Falls. Then, will take take a side trip to Yosemite Peak. After Yosemite Peak, will continue on to Eagle Peak before reaching El Capitan.
“Xtreme” means something different to everyone—our guides have crafted an additional route utilizing a turn around after Yosemite Peak, offering a 10 mile hike with 3,000 feet elevation gain (in 5 miles up). Both routes will include vistas of Yosemite Falls, Half Dome, Yosemite Valley and other iconic landscapes.
As the name states, this is a challenge of xtreme proportions. For many, you are committing to hiking further and raising more money than you have ever done before. As participants prepare for the physical challenge, hikers are encouraged to raise $2,500 through their personal and social media campaigns. Not to worry, we are here to support you every step of the way!
