It is around 1100 feet of altitude gain to a high mountain lake at 10,000 feet Great views and very peaceful. There were trout rising in the lake but nobody was fishing. I believe they might be brook trout.

Easy hike from Tuolumne meadows campground to the lake, not strenuous at all, with lovely views of surrounding peaks.

When my best friend and her husband came to visit me in California, both Alex (my husband) and I were totally enthused where to take them. Elizabeth Lake brings the feeling of Mother Nature watching over us. It's so beautiful!

Tioga pass highway 120 is closed so you can't get to the lake in the winter. Once they open Tioga road usually in late May or June (depending on snow) it's a magnificent hike.
