Was nice to see the area, but with the other extraordinary parts of Yosemite the meadow just didn't do much for us.

This is a 3.5 mile loop trail essentially flat hike up through the forest with multiple streamlets crossing the path. At times a bit close to Highway 41 but mostly deep enough to be quiet. Lots of birds, and in spring some nice baby blue...More

This is a great little walk for those looking for something mild and interesting. It's an easy walk and it would make a great trail fur a morning jog. Bring water.

A pleasant walk of about 2 hours. 8-10 interpretive signs display nature and history facts. And the wildflowers in June were abundant!

Start the hike before noon to miss the afternoon rains. Cross the Wawona Road over by the golf course. Up the hill a bit is the trailhead for the Meadow Loop. This is an easy hike that is 3.5 miles roundtrip. You are surrounded by...More
