Tuolumne Meadows in Spring? on 04/08/2009 16:47:22 MDT Print View

Has anyone here backpacked down the Tuolumne River towards Glen Aulin right after the Tioga Road is plowed in the spring?

I've been up there a lot but never before July.

Can anyone do a trip report for that time of the year?

Well you should have snow still covering most of the trails. Depends on how fast the thaw is

Jenn and I start at Tuolumne on the 22nd and head for Happy Isles. I am hoping the road is cleared by then. My problem is YARTS won’t start until June. We’re going to have to bring two cars.

I will report back on how it went.
