Tioga Pass, Tuolumne County, CA, United States
Follow this trail through conifers and across granite to cross a tributary of Yosemite Creek to Ten Lakes. Take care on this crossing early in the season when the creek is high. Continue on the trail to Ten Lakes Pass, overlooking the Grand Canyon of the Tuolumne and the Sierra Crest. Then descend 693 feet (211 m) into the Ten Lakes Basin, which contains a series of beautiful High Sierra lakes. Grant Lakes is at the end of a 1-mile (1.6-km) side trail from the pass.
This hike is also very popular with backpackers and can be done as 1,2, or 3 day excursion. For a one-night trip, enter and exit the Yosemite Creek Trailhead. For multiple nights, plan on entering the Yosemite Creek trailhead and exit via Tenaya Lake or May Lake.
