Tuolumne Meadows, Yosemite National Park
(4.6/5 based on 420+ reviews on the web)
Replete with creeks, towering trees, and rolling stretches of grassland, Tuolumne Meadows offers an array of options for hiking, climbing, and exploring the great outdoors of Yosemite National Park. Leave your car at one of the many small parking lots spaced out along the main road and explore the area, which features sprawling meadows surrounded by densely forested areas and backdrop of granite hills and mountains. Hit the trail and wander the meadows' open expanses or swing by the visitor center for a map and more information about popular routes. Many visitors head for one of the many granite domes in the meadows and climb them for a panoramic view of the alpine scenery. Our Yosemite National Park trip builder makes visiting Tuolumne Meadows and other Yosemite National Park attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • From Olmsted point to the actual meadow and glacial lake, an amazing add on to any Yosemite visit. Saw soda spring in meadow. Easily accessible from our hotel in El Portal. 
  • Stop to check out the Visitors Centre and get a map there are some good hikes here. Restrooms and tourists. 
  • Day trip from Yosemite Valley, the place is beautiful, but not as impressive as the main Valley. Pine River away granite monoliths. Located along the Tioga Rd., summer can be reached at etc toll YARTS.
