Getting There

Start at the Bridalveil Falls pullout off the southeast side of Wawona Road. The El Capitan free shuttle bus stops here during peak season hours. Sort gear and pack up in the parking area, and if you drove, leave someone with the gear while the other parks outside the lot. There are bear boxes semi-hidden behind the bathroom so tourists won't fill them up. For some reason there is no overnight parking in the lot, possibly due to the current construction. Park down the road about a couple hundred yards at a pull out.
