One of My Favorite Drives!
Jul 2020
One of my favorite drives! I never get tired of the view of granite mountain peaks, deep gorges, pine forests, meadows and streams ... you get the idea. I can't stress enough that this is a drive to take slowly, make lots of stops, get pictures, enjoy the majestic scenery ... Take. Your. Time. Going eastbound or westbound, this drive simply never gets old. One logistical item: Services (fuel, food and restrooms) are few and far between. Plan accordingly before you leave!

Amazing sights
Sep 2020
Tioga Pass was full of fire on our trip through, but we still saw some beautiful areas. Our kids really enjoyed running around on the rock faces at Olmsted Point, and playing near the river in Tulomne Meadow. Tenaya Lake was also a great picnic stop, where you can walk through ankle deep water and picnic on some tree stumps conveniently located just off the parking area. The road is well maintained and easy to drive on.

Take an Extra 20 mile down out of the park
Aug 2020
This is a GREAT drive, with beautiful view of mountains, valleys, and Half Dome. If taking the road from the west, it starts off slow but gets better as you head towards the Tioga Pass. Once you reach the pass, you need to continue out of the park for about another 20 miles to the town of Lee Vining, through Inyo National Forest. This drive was about 20 miles, dropping from an elevation of 9,945 feet to 6,837 feet. It was INCREDIBLE!!!! The town was nothing. We thought we would stop for some Ice cream, but could not find anything from a convivence store. But you will LOVE the drive, almost straight down, with the view of mountains, lakes and the valley. Don't miss it!

The best part of yosemite

There is so much to see! Different terrains, beautiful photo opportunities. Our favorites were Yosemite creek picnic area, Olmsted point, tenaya lake swimming and enoing, and pothole dome. A perfect day for our family of six!

We drove thru' the Tioga road and leave the Yosemite park at the Tioga pass entrance, this point is situated at 9945 feet high, at the Tioga pass entrance, you can see several snowy mountain view, also the Tioga lake (just outside the entrance) is beautiful, esp. when there were still some floating ice on the lake.

A high altitude treat
Oct 2019
If it's open and you have the time drive the Tioga Pass. It's a different experience than the very crowded Yosemite Valley with stunning views and trails.

Outstanding Feat of Engineering
Aug 2019
In my experience, this drive is second only to the Going to the Sun Road in Glacier NP amongst NP scenic drives, with the Blue Ridge Parkway a distant third. There is tremendous variation of sights along the way.
