Situated along a high alpine meadow, Sunrise High Sierra Camp is accessible from either the Sunrise Lakes trail from Tenaya Lake or the Cathedral Lakes trailhead in Tuolumne Meadows. Well-named for the spectacular morning views as the sun creeps over the mountains, Sunrise offers incredible vistas towards both the Cathedral & Clark Ranges. Local peaks include Colombia Finger, Tenaya Peak, Echo Peaks, Matthes Crest, and Cathedral Peak and are dramatic examples of Yosemite’s famous granite formations.
Sunrise High Sierra Camp was the idea of Mary Curry Tresidder, the daughter of “Mother” Jennie & David Curry, founders of Camp Curry. Mary Curry Tresidder and her husband, Don, ran the private concessionaire in Yosemite National Park for many years and were avid enthusiasts of the Yosemite high country. Mary Curry Tresidder believed that people should have better access to such a beautiful area and became the financial backer for this final high camp. Built in 1961 and the last of the High Sierra Camps, Sunrise completes the fifty mile High Sierra Camp Loop.
