Tenaya Lake, Yosemite National Park

(4.9/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web)
Take a walk on the shoreline of Tenaya Lake, or hike up the surrounding mountains. Breathe in fresh air coming down from the rocky hills, have a picnic next to the lake, or even go for a swim in the crystal clear water. Be careful as the water can be cold even during the warm months like June, or July. Wear comfortable shoes if hiking, and don’t forget to bring snacks, as well as drinkable water. Plan to see Tenaya Lake and other attractions that appeal to you using our Yosemite National Park tourist route planner.
