About Xtreme Hike
Welcome to Xtreme Hike Yosemite 2018. 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.
Since 2012, the Northern California Xtreme Hike has hiked
over 105 miles in iconic locations including Yosemite National Park & Lake
Tahoe and raised over $565,000 in support of finding a cure to cystic fibrosis.
For our 7th year, we will be in Yosemite hiking from the valley floor to
Glacier Point and Tunnel View. Join us on this amazing journey to view new
sights and climb higher heights.
In just one day, a dedicated team of Xtreme Hikers will hike 18 miles in beautiful Yosemite National Park to 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.
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 $2500 through their personal and social media campaigns. Not to worry, we are here to support you every step of the way!
Let's lace up those hiking boots and . . . . Hike On!

What makes the San Francisco Xtreme Hike Unique?
On hike weekend, you will embark on an 18 mile hike through the beautiful Yosemite National Park. First, you will journey along the south rim of Yosemite Valley on the 4 Mile Trail to Glacier Point. You will then travel along the Pohono Trail to Sentinel Dome, Taft Point, Dewey Point, Crocker Point and Stanford Point. Next, history will indulge your curiosity as you visit Inspiration Point and make the descent down to Tunnel View. Throughout the day, you will enjoy breathtaking views of Half Dome, Yosemite's high country mountain range, and overhead views of Yosemite Valley including El Capitan and Yosemite Falls. The elevation for Sacramento Xtreme Hike starts around 4,000 feet and climbs up to 8,122 at the highest point.
Hikers are supported by trained hiking guides from YExplore, leading them safely throughout the trail from beginning to end. Xtreme Hike is topped off with a finishers dinner Saturday evening and a victory breakfast and awards ceremony on Sunday morning. You will not want to miss this opportunity to meet like-minded individuals and challenge each other to help cure cystic fibrosis one step at a time!
The journey starts the moment you sign up. You will receive personal coaching, participate in training hikes and connect with a community of people who share your aspiration to reach new heights. Learn about Xtreme Hike events across the country.
