When you're ready to unleash your inner Viking or lumberjack, get to Yosemite Axe Throwing!

This adrenaline-pumping attraction was founded by Nate Hodges, a world champion ax thrower and the #2 ranked U.S. Stihl Timbersports Athlete.

Nate has designed a place that is far from your typical ax-throwing range. 

The first unique thing you'll notice at Yosemite Axe Throwing is the warm scent of cedar and pine, a deliberate choice to bring the outdoor experience inside. But what makes this special is that target lanes and countertops are crafted from reclaimed wood salvaged from local fire scars. 

The other factor that makes Yosemite Axe Throwing unique is the targets are logs and not flat boards. Lumberjacks use this, so Nate wants you to experience the "Real McCoy."

Whether you're a seasoned ax thrower or a curious first-timer, Yosemite Axe Throwing promises a thrilling experience steeped in the rich tradition of timber sports.

Fun Facts & Cool Features

Yosemite Axe Throwing is the only ax-throwing company in the world that uses 100% reclaimed trees for its targets. These trees are salvaged from timber lost due to drought, storm damage, wildfire, or bark beetle infestations. This approach demonstrates an eco-friendly commitment.

Another highlight is throwing at log targets, not boards like you see at other facilities. You'll have an authentic throwing experience, like lumberjacks or those competing in the sport. 

A unique feature of Yosemite Axe Throwing is its mobile unit, which can bring the experience to your event. Whether it's a birthday, wedding, fundraiser, fair, or rodeo, their mobile unit can accommodate any party. 

The package includes an instructor, axes, targets, and a safe enclosed environment. All guests need is a willingness to have fun and try something new. This feature offers a convenient and exciting way to include ax throwing in various events and gatherings​​.
