The historic Evergreen Lodge, with comfortable cabins just outside Yosemite National Park near the serene Hetch Hetchy Reservoir, maintains a year-round program of activities. With its two-night summer “Bike & Hike to Waterfalls” package for families with children, you can take the whole gang on one of two full-day guided trips; the choice depends on the weather and how the water is flowing. One trip goes to the Rainbow Pools; the other to Granite Gorge.

Date: The package is available May 24 through Sept. 5.

Price: $1,120 for two adults and two children (ages 2 to 12), plus tax and gratuities. The package includes two nights in a two-bedroom family cabin, guided trip (including bike rental), daily breakfast, trail lunch and an afternoon beverage. Note: The cut-off age for the guided trips can range from 8 to 12 years, depending on the child’s skill level; call to make sure your child qualifies. This package also is available in a version for couples.

Info: Evergreen Lodge, (209) 379-2606
