Tenaya Lake is known as the “jewel of the high country” thanks to its picture-perfect setting among granite domes and the vast wilderness. It is Yosemite’s largest front-country lake and one of the park’s most popular summer destinations. Hiking around the lake lets visitors create lasting impressions of Yosemite’s beauty and connect with one of the park’s most special places.
To improve the visitor experience, the south side of the hikers’ loop trail is being repaired and rehabilitated in 2013. Social trails are being removed and damaged areas restored. New trail and mileage signs are being installed at key junctions to improve way-finding. When this project is completed in fall 2013, visitors will experience a more direct, accessible and scenic trail for hiking around Tenaya Lake.
Thanks to your support, we are preserving and protecting natural resources, while enhancing the visitor experience for generations to come.
