Address: Yosemite, CA

Moderate | Lukens Lake - White Wolf - 4 miles.
Notes: Walk from White Wolf Campground to Lukens Lake is lovely when wildflowers are in bloom. Expect mosquitos. You can also approach Lukens Lake from a Trailhead on Tioga Road, which is only .8 mile one-way.

Moderate | Harden Lake/Harden Gardens - White Wolf - 6 miles loop.
Note: Loop hike from White Wolf to  Harden Lake, down to a viewpoint overlooking the Grand Canyon of the Tuolumne and back to junction with Lukens Lake/White Wolf Campground.

Moderate | Mono Pass - Tioga Road - 8 miles.
Note: Except that it begins at almost 10K elevation, this is not a difficult hike. Go about a mile beyond Mono Pass to Sardine Lake, and you have a view of Mono Lake in the distance.

Moderate | Gaylor Lakes - Tioga Pass - 4.6 miles.
Note: Hike is uphill for the first mile; moderate after that. Great scenery; trail leads to abandoned mining camp.

Moderate | Cathedral Lakes - Tuolumne Meadows - 8 miles.
Note: Most popular hike along Tioga, so it’s usually crowded.

Moderate | Lembert Dome - Tuolumne Meadows - 2.8 miles.
Note: Climb to the top of a granite dome.

Moderate to Strenuous | May Lake/Mt Hoffman - May Lake - 2.5 miles.
Note: Moderate to May Lake, Strenuous to Mt Hoffman . Mt Hoffman is the exact geographical center of Yosemite NP. Beyond May Lake there is no defined trail, just a “use trail” to its three summits.

Strenuous
 | Clouds Rest - Sunrise Trailhead - 14 miles.
Note: Great 360 deg. Views from a knife-edge piece of granite.

Keep in mind that all trails off Tioga Road are at 7,000 foot elevation and higher. Even though the hike may not have much elevation gain, it can still be more strenuous than you might expect. This is a small selection of the hikes available in this area. See www.yosemitehikes.com for additional trails.  

Happy and safe Hiking!
