Rate this Adventure Yosemite McGurk Meadow Parking

Added by The Outbound Collective

Sprawling meadows filled with wildflowers make for a peaceful and beautiful light Yosemite hike. 

Park in the dirt lot off Glacier Pt. Road, where you can access the trailhead to McGurk Meadow Trail. The 3.5 mile-out and back is doable for all skill levels, and offers gorgeous scenery.
