Trail Fork early in the Lyell Canyon Trail, Yosemite National Park

Take This Fork

If you're hiking Lyell Canyon, this fork is for you. You'll reach it less than half a mile into the hike. The left fork veers east to the Gaylor Lakes and Mono Pass, both of which you can reach much faster from those trails's official trailheads. The red panel at the top of the sign says that this is the Lyell Canyon trailhead (apparently the hiking you did to get here was just a preamble), so it's hard to go wrong here.
