Tuolumne Meadows is one of the largest high-elevation meadows in the Sierra Nevada at 8,619 feet. It is found in the eastern section of Yosemite National Park. The meadow vegetation is supported by shallow groundwater. It is accessible due to the park roadway that crosses the southern edge of the meadow and is free of snow from June to October.
Within Tuolumne meadows you will see the Tuolumne River against a backdrop of rugged mountain peaks and glacially carved domes. It has a good view of the Cathedral Range and Unicorn Peak in the south and Lembert Dome and Mount Dana on the east.
