I guess I started hiking Yosemite’s peaks a little different. Rather than gradually working my way from low to high or easy to difficult, I jumped in with the most difficult being Half Dome, then the second highest, Mount Dana. With that experience behind me, I decided to hike one of the most popular summits, Mount Hoffman with my father-in-law Jim.
The trail to Mount Hoffmann is the same trail used to go to May Lake. The trailhead is located at the end of Old Tioga Road off of Highway 120 (Tioga Pass Road). Be sure not to take the trail at the end of the parking lot, or you’ll end up at Tenaya Lake! This one starts in the middle of the parking lot on the north side. Round trip miles is 6.
