Highlights: The Tuolumne Meadows Tour is an amazing hike around the Yosemite high country often including landmarks like Lembert Dome, a massive granite dome similar to Half Dome but much less intimidating, as well as other locations like Soda Springs, Dog Lake and the vast Tuolumne Meadows themselves. Those feeling adventurous can head out to Glen Aulin, the beautiful valley, or bring out the whole family for a more leisurely tour around the meadows. This is a great hike for those looking to explore an area of the park known to the locals to contain all of the same majesty as Yosemite Valley with fewer crowds and congestion. In addition to providing you with natural and geological history, this hike will point out some of the lesser known ‘gems’ around the area. This is also great for those who have already explored Yosemite Valley and are looking to see a different area of the park. All tours are private.
