Planning to drive Tioga Road? It's a scenic, less visited part of Yosemite National Park, perfect for summer or fall. 

From the Big Oak Flat Entrance in the west to Lee Vining in the east, Tioga Road stretches about 72 miles through spectacular scenery. 

Walk among giant sequoias in Tuolumne Grove or Merced Grove. These are two of three groves in the park. 

Tioga Pass, at close to 10,000 feet above sea level, is the highest point on the drive. The pass is the highest auto mountain pass in California.

Olmsted Point along Tioga Road is one of the best viewpoints in Yosemite National Park. The views of Clouds Rest and Half Dome are impressive.

Tenaya Lake is one of the most beautiful lakes in California. There is a beach you can enjoy, and a trail to walk around the lake. 

Tuolumne Meadows look stunning, especially in the spring and early summer, with lots of wildflowers and fresh green in the meadows.

If you are up for a challenge, you can climb to the top of Lembert Dome for expansive views. The climb is rated moderately difficult.

There are many other exciting things to see and do along Tioga Road, from scenic overlooks to lakes and hiking.
