Create an itinerary including Tuolumne Meadows
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.

  • These meadows are a sight as we came down from the mountains on the road to Tioga pass. Very serene and peaceful with lovely views

  • Amazing scenery. A great contrast to the Yosemite valley, and much cooler in the summer. The short "soda springs" hike from the visitor center is very much worth it.
  • Great place for hikes around a beautiful grassy landscape interspersed with mountains and small creeks. If you are taking the Tioga Pass stop here and do any of the hikes, even the short soda springs one is very worth it
