Tuolumne Meadows Tours

Tuolumne Meadows
Located in the eastern section of Yosemite National Park, Toulumne Meadows provides an alternate view from the popular Yosemite Valley section of the park. A gently rolling, sub-alpine area near the Tuolumne River, the Meadows is home to a wide variety of wildlife, several alpine lakes, hiking trails and plenty of rock climbing.

Try the easy hike to Soda Springs and Parsons Lodge or trek up to Gaylor Lake for spectacular high-country views. Less crowded than the Valley, Toulumne is worth the approximately two-hour drive from the Yosemite Valley to experience this idyllic setting.

Practical Info

You can access Toulumne Meadows by the Tioga Road, which usually opens around late May or early June, depending on conditions. Once the road opens, trails can remain wet and/or snowy for a few to several weeks. The Tioga Road usually closes sometime in November. Free shuttle service is available in the Tuolumne Meadows from approximately mid June through mid September and camping sites are available during this time as well.
Address: Tuolumne Meadows, Yosemite National Park, CA, USA

Reaching elevations upwards of 10,000 feet, Tioga Pass is a once-in-a-lifetime drive. Scattered with mountain views, alpine lakes and wildflower-dotted meadows, you'll be happy you left the driving to us. Gaze out the window and look for bears as you make our way to the Pothole Dome trailhead. Enjoy a short hike overlooking Tuolumne Meadows before heading to Tenaya Lake. Here, you'll enjoy an included box lunch and have the chance to swim in the crystal clear alpine waters of the lake. On the way back to the hotel, we will make another stop at Olmstead Point for a vantage point of Half Dome most people miss.
