Introducing our 2021 Covid-19 Special schedule for an OUTFITTED TRIP into Lillian Lake, Staniford Lakes or Lady Lake. This trip is designed for guests to build their own group for pack support trekking into the Ansel Adams Wilderness. Guests choose their own group or family members to travel with, schedule a location with dates given for the trip listed. The minimum group size should be 3-4 to 5 or more people, and maximum group size is 12 people. Your group will be the only group served at the location you reserve for. Minarets Pack Station packs your personal gear into camp which has already been setup for you, and packs it out at the end of your stay.
Arrive the day before your scheduled trip out. Plan to be here at the pack station at least by 4pm so you can take a hike around the meadow. Stay in our forest glamping wall tents. Each wall tent is sanitized before your arrival and after your departure for your health-conscious convenience. You will be our guests for supper and breakfast. Each meal is served on our outdoor deck overlooking the meadow. Supper is at 6:30 PM, Don’t Be Late. The next morning your gear has to be put on our loading dock at 7:00 AM. The weight limit on each person’s gear is approximately 25 pounds. Breakfast is served at 7:30 AM. After breakfast, you will leave the pack station for the Ansel Adams Wilderness Trek by 8:30 AM., arrive at camp by 3:00 PM. The trail is a moderate level trek which is four and a half to five hours in and out. Sack lunches and drinks will be provided for each guest. Pack Support will drop your lunches at the base of the Wall for your lunch break. The Wall is an impressive trail pass with an elevation climb of approximately 700 feet, and breathtaking scenic views at the top. Dinner time is up to you. You are your camp cook. Sunday is your free day to explore. Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner are provided for you to cook. Monday breakfast and a traveling lunch are yours to make. On your last day you leave camp by 10:00 AM.
