Lyell Canyon Trail

NileGuide Expert Says:

The Lyell Fork of the Tuolumne River runs crystal-clear down the valley from the snow and glaciers around Yosemite's highest point --- Mt. Lyell. Far up the valley you'll find beautiful subalpine meadows and great campsites. Consider taking the spur to camp at Ireland Lake, a deep blue lake at the head of a huge alpine plateau and surrounded by an amphitheater of peaks. Or, continue up to the meadows below Mt. Lyell or Mt. McClure for the ultimate Yosemite backcountry experience.

NileGuide Expert tip:

Miles of flat travel; unusual amidst all this alpine relief. No camping until you're at least 4 miles upcanyon.
