Dewey Point, California, USA
Badger Pass to Dewey Point Snowshoe HikeThere's an absolute gem of a hike in Yosemite National Park that anyone who loves a good winter snowshoe hike should do.
It's a seven-mile out-and-back trek from Badger Pass to the inspirational Dewey Point, which is on the south rim at just over 7,000 feet elevation. It's hard to find a more glorious view in all of California. The joy of having only a few fellow adventurers up there with you in winter—it's truly a treasure.
During my recent visit, the packed snow meant that I didn't even wear my snowshoes the majority of the time and instead just had on my trail running shoes. You can rent shoes at the Badger Pass recreation center, if you don't have your own.
Get out there and soak up the wild magic.
