Lyell Canyon Trail

Yosemite Village, California

Lyell Canyon Trail Professional Review and Guide

"This out-and-back is an easy Sunday stroll and a perfect spot for beginning hikers, families, or anyone desiring a lazy amble in an amazingly beautiful setting. If we had to introduce skeptical friends to the joys of lacing up hiking boots, this would be the trail to pick. The trail is mostly flat, but boasts picture-perfect meadows framed by granite monoliths, as gorgeous as any you may find in at Yosemite National Park. Usually you have to really work to afford a view like this. Outstanding features: Stunning meadows, views of Kuna Crest, trout fishing"
