This route could be done in two or three days, or you can keep it easy by hiking four easy days. This route starts where 120 crosses Yosemite Creek and ends at Tenaya Lake, so it may be best to leave a car at the end before beginning. Parking at Tenaya Lake is on the shoulder of the road, and the shoulder gets crowded on a busy weekend in the summer. The first day is a hike up a beautiful canyon, ascending 1400' to the Ten Lakes area. This is the hardest day, but it is very scenic. The second day takes you over the pass just north of Toulumne Peak, with great views of the Tuolumne Valley to the north. The third day takes you down to Tenaya Lake.
