Tuolumne Meadows

Explore the meadows of Yosemite National Park’s high country and see its velvety green plains studded with stunning granite domes, Sierra willows and wildflowers.

The Tuolumne Meadows offer a tranquil expanse of sub-alpine high country landscape, carpeted by lush grasses and myriad California wildflowers. Explore the picturesque walking trails and enjoy Yosemite’s breathtaking showcase of granite peaks, a winding river and towering coniferous woods.

Stroll along Tuolumne Meadows’ network of easy trails, which total approximately 2 miles (3 kilometers). You’ll cross scenic footbridges that span the gentle waters of the Tuolumne River. Look out across the wide expanse of green meadows and view the panorama of granite peaks, including the bald rise of Lembert Dome and the jagged summit of Cathedral Peak. See serene pools of the Tuolumne floodwaters reflecting the sky in springtime, when snowmelt inundates the meadows.

Walk to Soda Springs to see a historic timber cabin or check out the tree-studded vista from Pothole Dome. If you time your visit with late spring and early summer, you’ll be treated to a breathtaking array of Californian wildflowers. You might spot rare species, such as the purple webber lupine. Throughout the year, you’ll see varieties of sedge and reed grasses.

Several hiking and rock climbing trails traverse the Tuolumne Meadows. Stop at the visitor center to learn which trails are recommended for the period of your stay. Hike between Lyell Canyon and the meadows or take on a section of the John Muir Trail and Pacific Crest Trail.

Tuolumne Meadows is located in central Yosemite National Park. Access the area via Tioga Road, which has regular closures in winter due to heavy snowfall. The meadow has restrooms, a convenience store and several small parking lots. Stay overnight at the Tuolumne Meadows campground or indulge in a bit more luxury at one of the scenic lodges located nearby. If you visit during an especially wet, marshy summer, be sure to pack plenty of mosquito repellant for your meandering. The walking trail is an easy stroll, but make sure you give yourself some time to acclimate to the high country’s elevation.
