Glen Aulin (moderate)

11 miles (17.7 km) round-trip, 800-foot elevation gain; 6-8 hours

Follow the Tuolumne River as it drops to Glen Aulin. Tuolumne Fall and White Cascade are four miles from the trailhead. Beyond Glen Aulin are California Fall (13 miles roundtrip), LeConte Fall (15 miles roundtrip), and Waterwheel Falls (18 miles roundtrip). The return hike follows the same route.

*Making it a loop hike: How about all that discussion we had of the trail less travelled along the western side of the Tuolumne River?

Just last Wednesday my son Nick and I took the Pothole Dome - Westside route to the Tuolumne Falls bridge - it worked beautifully, nothing difficult, saved us a ouple miles, and gave us a nice close-up view of Little Devil's Postpile. Waterwheel Falls was great, plenty of water in the 'wheels, and easy close access across the granite.

Goatineer's Route: a wonderfully scenic route that takes you over Pothole Dome instead of around it, and it also includes a nifty campsite at 8,500ft, with excellent views and a private creek flowing nearby (seasonal). This route also includes a higher approach to the Glen Aulin area, so the only traffic encountered was at the actual falls, themselves .Overnight temperatures at 8,500ft were 26F, so bring warmies.

I've done that one and, yes, it is nice.
