Izzy Zucker

Lead Backpacking Guide

Sharing the wonders of the outdoors with others is Izzy’s favorite part of being a guide. Izzy has spent her summers on trails with campers in Yosemite, the Pacific Northwest, British Columbia, and North Carolina. She has guided everyone from ages 5-75 in Arizona, southern Utah, and Wyoming. Izzy has been guiding since 2010 and strives to create a positive environment where people can be, find, and challenge themselves in the outdoors.

She earned her bachelors of science from the University of California, Davis in Environmental Horticulture and Urban Forestry and Education.  She also guided in the outdoor program at UC Davis and was always eager to learn new outdoor activities such as rock climbing, rafting, and sea kayaking. 

In her free time Izzy can be found trail running with a furry friend, climbing, playing guitar, making greeting cards, and enjoying the company of friends and family. We are psyched to have Izzy as past of our team leading our guests along the backcountry trails of Yosemite and the High Sierra.
