Soda Spring Acesss Professional Reviews and Guides

"A wide, sandy trail heads right into the heart of enormous Tuolumne Meadows amid a riot of wildflowers and crosses the Tuolumne River as it winds its sinuous way through the meadow. Beyond, you can visit mysterious Soda Springs and stop at historic Parsons Lodge, which houses exhibits of early days in Yosemite."

"Most trailheads in the Tuolumne Meadows region begin by leaving the meadows. They disappear into the conifer forests that surround the gigantic meadow. If you just want to absorb the beautiful flower-filled meadow and look up at the surrounding peaks, take this walk. You will also visit the intriguing Soda Springs and the historic Parsons Lodge. During June the second half of this loop will be too muddy to complete, so make it an out-and-back walk to Parsons Lodge."

"This is an easy exploration of the largest subalpine meadow in the Sierra with wildflowers galore, a good chance of seeing wildlife, and a taste of Yosemite history."

this is a beautiful part of Yosemite! Hike about a mile past Glen Aulin and you will find great camp sites on the right by the river. Take a day to hike to water wheel and ENJOY!
