Exhibits detail the story of the area’s lake-to-meadow succession. This can be a good place to spot wildlife like coyotes and bobcats. This is a great hike in Yosemite to do in the fall and winter because the trail is accessible year round. This is also a great option for biking. You can bike nearly the whole trail to Mirror Lake except for the last 1/4 mile. You will see bike racks at the point in the trail when bikes are no longer allowed.
