We are a fit couple who love to hike and have a very active two year old. If Tioga Rd is open in mid June, we might be able to take a detour to spend a day or two there. We have never been to Yosemite.
The challenge is that our toddler hates to be pinned in the car. He likes to walk, play with sticks, etc. Is happy in a backpack carrier for a while but hates a stroller with a passion.
Assuming Tioga is open, can you recommend short hikes and sights in mid June? Is Yosemite Valley worth driving 2 hours (4 roundtrip) or would we be better served with some other hikes with great views on the East side of the park, saving Yosemite Valley for when he is older? It would be a mid week trip in mid June.
