Tuolumne Meadows, 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.

Tuolumne Meadows Reviews
What a beautiful view you get to excellence from Tuolumne Meadows.It your have time when visiting Yosemite then you should try to visit this Meadows and it'll surely not let you down. more »
제가 갔을때는 절정기가 아니어서 그렇게 아름답지는 않았지만 충분히 좋아보였습니다. 여름에는 이곳에 모기가 많아 굉장한 주의를 기울여야 한다고 들었습니다. more »I was not so beautiful when I went, but it looked good enough. In summer, I heard that there were lots of mosquitoes, so we had to pay attention.
Amazing place. Available mostly for camping, so don't expect extra comfort - but definitely worth it.
A welcome respite from the hordes in Yosemite Valley. Flee from the other tourists, and explore the backcountry! Spectacular day hikes (Lembert Dome, Cathedral Peak, Lyell Canyon), overnights (Glen Aulin, Upper and Lower Cathedral Lakes) and weekend (Miller Lake) trips in all directions. Tip for John Muir Trail hikers: permitting from Tuolomne is much easier than Yosemite Valley. Hike northbound to YV (20 miles, all downhill), return to Tuolomne via YARTS bus, then continue southbound to Mt. Whitney.
