Don’t cancel your trip just because the Yosemite Valley is closed right now due to fires. The Tuolumne Meadow area of Yosemite is absolutely incredible right now. (Pics taken August 9, 2018.) We hiked up to the top of Lembert Dome and were just blown...More

Due to the Ferguson fire we spent most of our time in Yosemite here. Awesome hikes for all different ages and ability levels. Gaylor Lakes home offered amazing scenery! Had some confusion about posted times for ranger led programs.

My son and I made reservations the required six months ago to camp at Tuolumne Meadows. Then the Ferguson Fire started. So to be fair, I am not going to complain about the occasional lack of a view or my eyes burning whilst hiking. Air...More

Stunningly beautiful, with fewer crowds. We stopped for a wander and dipped our feet in the river. Really peaceful.

I was expecting wildflowers. They said come back in a month for that. It was too hot and sunny out in the field to stay long. The visitor center was nice and they have ranger talks.

We took half a day to visit Tuolumne Meadows and it's very nice and peaceful. However, if you have to choose going to Mariposa Grove or Tuolumne Meadows, choose Mariposa Grove. We loved it just the same!

Tuolumne Meadows is a lush green meadow on Tioga Road. There is a visitor centre, campground, as well as the Tuolumne Meadows Grill, a casual fast-food type of restaurant. We stopped here around 4pm on a Monday in June, mainly to buy ice cream after...More

If you only see the Yosemite Valley, you have missed a chance to see the less crowded and sublimely beautiful high meadows. Just dedicate a day to driving along this road, stopping where the view, river, or sunset strikes you! Get out of the car...More

Hi This is the listing for Tuolumne Meadows. Do you mean Tenaya Lake on Tioga Road? Then, yes. You can swim in this chilly alpine lake. There are other lakes where you can swim, but none with such easy access. And there... More

I don't remember it being all that winding, but remember, you will on the Tioga Pass Road. That goes into the mountains. The speed limit is quite slow, so that might help a bit. As for the cabins, I cannot help you on... More

Tuolumne Meadows is covered in snow in April. No wildflowers. The Tuolumne Meadows Visitor Center will probably open in July this year. Figuring out what to do in a destination can be discussed on the travel forum for... More
