We were lucky enough to practically have the place all to ourselves. When we arrived a small group of people were just leaving and for the couple of hours that we stayed walking around the meadow, there was nobody else in sight. Very peaceful and serene. The views are postcard amazing. It started raining a little bit but just lasted for around 10 minutes. You can imagine our senses of sight, hearing and smell were to the max. Unforgettable experience.

Should be more featured than it is. A true hidden gem. Great views and plenty of places to be on top of the world. Views to amaze, rock structures to challenge and water features to calm and relax by.

We enjoyed a hike in the meadows area after the seasonal closure of the visitor center. As expected, nothing was open. But we enjoyed the views & the beginnings of fall color.

The road crew has accomplished great things this summer. We visited in early June 2022 and again in late September 2022. I think the new curb is a good protection for the meadow.

We had a great visit going up to the Meadows and hiking LAmbert Dome. What a beautiful set of views. Caught crazy flash flood rain and hail on the night of Sept 12th on our way back at about 5 pm! beautiful and a bit scary too.

It has some of the best views and formations besides the tunnel view. Also be advised that in certain seasons there is no restaurant open and only gas station food available. The elevation is strong also go easy.

Beautiful area and easy place for a nice walk. Lots of people unfortunately but we had a nice lunch spot to ourselves by a stream. We only walked to soda springs (was nice and easy after clouds rest) but found it worth it!

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

We hiked through the Meadows to the Post Office to pick up our re-supply on our hike of the John Muir Trail. A nice flat stroll on well maintained paths before we crossed 120 and began to climb up to Cathedral Pass. Simply a beautiful area.

Folks, Another Redeeming Feature of this stop is the Crossover of the Pacific Crest Trail! For casual visitors this is an accessible hike to say you been on this 2,653 mile gem. Even though 70 miles of the PCT are within Yosemite, few day trippers and East Coasters have the ability to hike it. Here is your chance!! Stop the car and hike a small section up to Soda Springs or beyond. Its flat, scenic and alpine quality are magical. BONUS TIP: The PCT and the famous John Muir Trail overlap right here in the Meadow! 2 famous trails for price of one.
