Mirror Lake: one of Yosemite’s most popular destinations

Mirror Lake is one of Yosemite’s most popular tourist destinations, located in the northwest corner of Yosemite Valley at the mouth of Tenaya Canyon. During the spring runoff, Tenaya Creek floods and forms several beautiful lakes that are indeed quite reflective, especially in the morning light. But since Mirror Lake is conveniently located in the heart of Yosemite Valley with several hiking trails and a paved biking road leading right to it, be prepared to share the sights with many other people. If you’re looking for a longer option, a hike along this section of the Park Loop Trail offers great views from directly under the face of Half Dome.
