Great, short trail. When I went I only had 2 days in the park, and I needed to time manage well. This was a good way to see the meadows, but still be able to move to our next stop quickly.

A very easy hike along the Tuolumne River in Tuolumne Meadows. Soda Springs (according to his diary) was John Muir's favorite place to camp in Yosemite. The lodge is historic and has educational material inside. Worth the stroll out there.
