    The bus service from Fresno to Yosemite Valley is good news. However, one of the hardest drives for section hikers is the road to Lake Edison. Do you know if there’s some sort of shuttle from Fresno to there? That really is one of the most nerve rattling drives I’ve ever made!
    Happy Trails!!

      We are certainly very pleased that YARTS is finally coming to Fresno, it will make it much easier for our hikers to get back into Yosemite after either exiting at Edison or FLorence Lakes and for those taking the bus or train from So. California.
      We have offered a hikers shuttle service for several years now, either bringing hikers off the mountain into Fresno or out of Fresno into the backcountry. It is a 3 plus hour trip with the last 30 miles down a windy narrow road with spectacular vistas of the Sierra ridge line.
      Our website at edisonlake.com will provide timing and current prices for this service, under the tab Hiker Services. This ride will certainly give you an idea of the logistics issues that the VVR and our friends at the MTR deal with on a daily basis. Anyway it’s a hoot and certainly provides a different perspective of living and working in the High Country.
      Enjoy the planning for your hike as I feel that is half the fun and feel free to contact us with questions.

    I assume this is seasonal. Any word on what the season will be (specifically, will it continue during Sept.)? Thanks.

    If taking YARTS out of Fresno or Merced to Yosemite Valley, what is the best way to,get to Tuolumne Meadows. It looks like there is service from the Valley but not sure where and when to pick it up.

    We used the Van trip out of the John Muir Ranch (hike and then boat ride) and the shuttle was fabulous and a life saver. I highly recommend it. And yes the views on that road are spectacular
