My wife an I completed a hike today on the Bright Angel with Jen. She was fantastic, very energetic and informative. She let us set our pace and kept great conversation along the hike.

I don't know where to begin to describe how great this trip was. First of all, our guide, Dallan was fantastic. He took such good care of us and cooked great meals. He was extremely knowledgeable and we felt very safe in the back country of Yosemite. I wish I would have trained more for the trip as it was... More

I just completed a five-day trek in Yosemite. It was an amazing experience. Our guide, Kyle Sherman, was great! He was organized, knowledgeable, encouraging, and entertaining with his quick wit. The scenery was spectacular and although the route was physically challenging at times I would highly recommend this trip.

Our group of 6 hiked with JRI guide Kyle from the bottom of Yosemite Falls to as high as Cloud's Rest and back down past Vernal Falls. One of our group didn't get into the physical fitness necessary to keep up with the group and Kyle stayed with him the whole way. On more than one occasion Kyle picked up... More
