Clif Bar #TrailMagic at Yosemite

Rush Creek Lodge and our sister property the Evergreen Lodge are so happy to be a part of Clif Bar’s summer #TrailMagic promotion!  There are so many fun things going on – we’ll do our best to break it down for you here.

Free Samples and ‘Golden Tickets’

Starting July 28th, when you stay at either of our lodges you’ll get to sample one of their Clif Bar’s yummy new Nut Butter Filled bars, filled with gooey deliciousness like hazelnut butter or almond butter.  And in the grand American tradition of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, you may just open your package to find a ticket for an instant prize  like outdoor gear from Nalgene, Headsweats, Bushnell and others (though the winning tickets are not made of gold, ha!).

You can look for samples at other National Parks as well – they’re giving away more than 600,000 of them at 10 National Park communities throughout the country: Yosemite, Yellowstone, Zion, Bryce Canyon, Glacier, Great Smoky Mountains, Grand Teton, Acadia, Arches/Capitol Reef, and Rocky Mountain National Park. (Visit to find participating locations.)

So Many Prizes

The list of prizes is massive – Clif Bar and more than 20 partners (like us) are giving away over $75,000 in prizes between now and October 15th.  You could win anything from multi-day bike adventures to local paddling and whitewater rafting, bike park passes, free tours, and tons of outdoor gear. (Visit for specifics.)

More Than One Way to Win!

Tag your favorite ‘trail magic’ photos with #TrailMagic and you might win a free night at Rush Creek or the Evergreen Lodge, or one of dozens of other experiences like kayaking in Yellowstone or rafting in Montana.

And while you’re posting your favorite ‘trail magic’ photo remember to use #YosemiteFirst and submit your image to our #YosemiteFirst Photo Contest to be in the running for one of six Yosemite getaways at Rush Creek above and beyond the TrailMagic bounty!
