Spent three days at the campsite up here at the end of the season. It was cold (32F) at night. But it was amazing. The first photo shows a morning view of the water near the campsite. The morning light this high up is amazing....More

We parked nearby and then walked along the outskirts of the meadow and then up to the top of pothole dome for magnificent views of the mountains.

Great spot to visit and have a stroll through the meadows. Many trails start here but take some time to enjoy the meadows and streams. Climb some of the domes as well around the meadows too.

Spent 4d getting scared silly climbing on the runout slabs of Tuolumne's Domes. Did a number of routes in the 5.6-5.9 ranges on Stately Pleasure Dome, Dozer Dome and Medlicott Dome. Felt the gradings, though consistent, were 1-2 grades harder than elsewhere. That would have...More

If you think about Yosemite Park and the time you will spend there, 60% is spent in Yosemite Valley and Glacier Point Road. Wawona is worth a half day when the Redwoods become available again later in 2017. Then there is Tioga Pass Road to...More

Beautiful Meadow with wildflowers and a nice river running through it. A beautiful area to take a hike or head out and backpack.

I spent a couple nights at Tuolumne Meadows Backpackers Campground while waiting for my John Muir Trail hike. Honestly, I could spend a week in the area. The store, grill and campground are full of people enjoying good times together. The daily list of Ranger...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
