Tuolumne Meadows Central Trail
There are three trailhead entrances to Tuolumne Meadows from the Tioga Pass Road: one from the western edge,
near Pothole Dome
; one near the eastern edge, at the
trailhead; and this one, smack in the middle.
It's your shortest path (half a mile) to Parsons Lodge and the soda springs,
should you be in a hurry to reach those attractions,
and it takes you across the picturesque Tuolumne River bridge
