This autumn we will celebrate completion of the restoration of East Beach shoreline and wetlands at Tenaya Lake. This picture-perfect High Sierra lake is surrounded by striking granites domes and vast wilderness. It is Yosemite’s largest front country lake and one of the park’s most popular summer destinations.
Celebrating Tenaya East Beach Restoration
A new ecologically friendly and accessible trail is being installed, and re-routed away from sensitive wetland areas. This year work includes planting wetland willows and sedges along the now heavily eroded shoreline area. The goal is to return this wetland area to its natural state, while allowing visitors to enjoy an unspoiled and serene setting. Visitors will follow the new trail out to the sandy beach where picnic facilities are available, and new exhibits will provide information on surrounding ecology as well as the Tenaya Lake loop trail system.
Thank you for your support, together we are protecting this magnificent lake and providing you with an enjoyable Yosemite experience.
