"Which is your favorite day hike in Tuolumne Meadows? There are so many that look such fun. I wish the Old Tioga Rd was a maintained trail."
1. Go north on the Dog Lake Trail and keep going north to Ragged Peak. Climb the peak, and then return.
2. Elizabeth Lake is short.
3. Bubb Lake is short.
4. Hike up to Bubb Lake, then loop back behind Cathedral Peak and back to the road.
The original Tioga Road is not visible in many places unless you know where to look. There are several segments of it more in the center of the park, west and east of Mount Hoffmann, and then some all the way to Tioga Pass. Some of the segments are packed gravel from the wagon days and a few are disintegrating pavement from the automobile days. Further, if you look closely, you can see where people had camps along the way. There is a lot of history there.
