Lyell Canyon via the John Muir Trail (easy)

8 miles (12.9 km) round-trip, 200-foot elevation gain; four hours

Begin across the road from the Dog Lake parking area (shuttle stop #2)

This trail passes through Lyell Canyon, along the Lyell Fork of the Tuolumne River. Early in the season, the trail can be muddy in places (please remain on the trail even if it's muddy). There are several creek crossings, including Rafferty Creek (bridged) and Ireland Creek (unbridged). Spectacular Kuna Creek cascades down the side of the east canyon wall near the eight-mile mark.

For a shorter trip, walk 1/2 hour each way to the Lyell Fork and "Twin Bridges."

Take pictures. Especially of the stream crossings.
