I've seen many reviews that say this is a hidden gem. I may have been spoiled, in that I'd just spent a week at high altitude in Telluride, and earlier this year we hiked the relatively empty Mist Trail in Yosemite on the day they reopened, but I was underwhelmed by this hike. It was also pretty busy, which I did not expect. It's a good thing we were acclimated, because the first half-mile is a 20% grade, and you start at almost 10,000 feet. I can't help but compare to something like Young Lakes in Tuolumne (or Mount Dana), and I found this hike a little monotonous. It's pretty enough, but you're in a very target-rich environment in this area. Maybe do this if you've exhausted the hikes nearby (it's probably better in the morning or late afternoon as well).

タイオガ道路のタイオガ峠の登山口から標高差約100mと短い時間でたどり着けます。氷河湖展望が素晴らしかった。

It was a bit cool in October but still was a great hike. Beautiful lake and mountain views! Stay well hydrated and make note of the elevation. Make sure you go past the upper lake all the way up to the old mine and buildings associated with it.

Probably one of the most neglected trails in Yosemite NP, in my opinion, is the hike into the Gaylor Lakes Basin. It has everything you'd ever want in a hike...a good workout, amazing scenery, some cross-country adventure and hours of solitude if you time it right.

The trailhead is located right next to the east entrance station to Yosemite along Tioga Road. The parking lot is not signed, so keep that in mind if you are trying to figure out where the trailhead is. The first 0.6 mi. is definitely a climb...you head up almost 600 ft. to the ridge above, but the views of the Dana Meadows valley below you are absolutely delightful the entire way.

Once you reach the ridgeline, Middle Gaylor Lake appears below you, and you only drop about 200 ft. down to the shoreline into the basin. Following the trail around the north side of the lake, you eventually head past Upper Gaylor Lake and eventually you climb up to the Great Sierra Mine, the designated end of the trail. The views of the lakes and basin from this spot are incredible. If you climb a short distance above the mine you'll get even more sweeping views not only of the Gaylor Lakes Basin, but Tioga Lake, Ellery Lake and Lee Vining Canyon down to the east. The total distance to the Great Sierra Mine from the parking lot is only around 1.7 mi. one way.

An option is to hike cross country to the Granite Lakes, which is quite easily accomplished. Both Upper and Lower Granite Lakes are gorgeous in their own right and worth the effort to reach them. To complete the hike, you'll need to hike cross country back across the basin meadows to Middle Gaylor Lake, back up to the main trail and back down to the parking lot.

This trail may not have the wow factor of places in Yosemite Valley, but if you want a true wilderness day hiking experience in the park w/ solitude, this is probably your best bet. One of my favorite moderate hikes I've ever done.

This was a challenging 568' in half mile climb, yay for treking poles! While ii had its own interesting detail for 11000 Alpine lakes, save your energy for Cathedral Lakes, or out Lyell Canyon, or Panarama trail out Glacier Point Rd. I live close to the park so hitting trails i typically pass over is easy for ne, but if you only have so much time, save your legs!

I travel to Yosemite at least once to twice a year and have hiked and traveled by mule to many areas in the park. However, this was my first trip to Gaylor Lakes. The parking lot for the trailhead is just as you enter the easter gate off of the Tioga Pass. The first thing you have to remember is that you are hiking from about 10,500 ft to 11,000 ft. So if you haven't already acclimated to the higher altitude, this hike is going to be slow and steady as you try to breath at that altitude. Be careful of altitude headaches. You may want to take some aspirin or ibuprofen before you leave. The first half mile of the trail is a killer for us old folks. It's straight up, but if you go slow and stop frequently to "take pictures" (get your breath,) you'll be treated to some incredible views all around you. Once you hit the summit and start to go downhill, you're treated to a gorgeous alpine valley with a medium sized lake and views of the tops of other mountains. I know someone said that there are better hikes, and I would agree, but this hike has some incredible geography, very few hikers, and is breathtaking in its own way. After you summit, you are past the tree-line and there are no trees along your path down by the lake itself, giving you a good idea of what an alpine meadow looks like. We also hiked up to the next, small lake, and it was delightful too. If you have already hiked the trail to Glen Aulin and the trails up by Glacier Point, then I'd definitely recommend this hike. Just make sure you take it slow and easy up the mountain!

My family and i did this hike. It is on the eastern side of Yosemite up near the Tioga Pass Station.

This hike starts at around 9,000 feet. You then hike pretty much straight up for 45 minutes. We were having a tough time getting up to the top and we are in relatively good shape.

After you reach the top, the trail then heads down to ward the lake. We were in no mood to head straight down after the initial hike up. There were other hikers that did the same as us on that day. The scenery on the initial hike up is nothing that great. We wished we had chosen a different hike.

My brother and I did a hike to this amazing lake for fly fishing, and we were impressed by its beauty and the lack of people that were there. You must visit this hidden gem!

Premesso che le nostre alpi non hanno nulla da invidiare, è sicuramente un trekking bello e facile da fare. Praticamente è appena entrati al tioga pass. Quest'anno lo hanno aperto dalle neve all'inizio di luglio e quando siamo arrivati noi il 19 c'era ancora neve lungo il percorso.
