Mirror Lake

The Mirror Lake hike in Yosemite National Park is a beautiful trail that leads to a serene lake surrounded by granite cliffs and lush vegetation.

The trailhead for this hike is located at the shuttle stop #17. The hike is a moderate, 2-mile trail that takes you through the forest and along the Merced River. You’ll pass by cascading waterfalls and towering trees on the way to the lake. The highlight of the hike is reaching Mirror Lake, which gets its name from the way its calm waters reflect the surrounding landscape. The lake is a popular spot for swimming, fishing, and picnicking. The trail is open all year round, however, it’s best to experience this hike in the spring when the water flow is at its highest, making the waterfalls more spectacular.

It’s a great option for those looking for a scenic and peaceful hike in Yosemite National Park.
