Tuolumne Meadows, Yosemite National Park

4.7
#2 of 20 in Trails in Yosemite National Park
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. Put Tuolumne Meadows into our Yosemite National Park road trip website to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Yosemite National Park.

  • Words cannot describe. Unfortunately, more people are here. Also the campsite nearby creates some haze at times in the area. It's beyond me why they allow campfires in such a prestine environment.
  • Absolutely breathtaking. Stunning does not describe it. Toomaloom meadows is the place to be. Chestnut chester and I spent all day bathing myself in lotion trying to become one with nature. Onlookers didn't look very pleased. But I convinced them. Eventually managed to get squishy with a deer. Would come back.
