Benson Lake Trail Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This long trip leads to the heart of northern Yosemite, reaching Benson Lake with its “Benson Riviera“—a long, wide, sandy beach at the lake’s northeast end. Because the lake is just off the main trail and is relatively warm, it’s quite popular; you’ll have company here."
