Tuolumne Meadows
Above Yosemite Valley at 8,600 feet lies Tuolumne Meadows, a pristine subalpine landscape of mountain cirques and domes, lodgepole pines, and grassy expanses flanking the Tuolumne River – the most photographed area in the park outside of Yosemite Valley. From here, a number of trails lead into the backcountry, including the Pacific Crest and John Muir trails, to landmarks like Cloud’s Rest, Lembert Dome, and Cathedral Lakes. There are more than 300 tent and RV sites at the campground, but this lovely jewel of the Sierras is also easily done as a day trip by car from the valley. Before starting your exploration, stop in at the historic visitor center to learn a little more about the flora, fauna, and geology of the area – then grab and ice-cream treat at the Tuolumne Meadows Grill.
