Came here early September. The trail was mostly dry. Easy stroll around the very beautiful Tenaya lake. Encountered few people on the trail. Great hike to take older family members onto. Can spend sometime on the pristine beach/in water when weather is warm.

Tenaya Lake trail has beautiful views of stone mountains and snow-capped mountains well into July. Be prepared to walk through about a foot of water in the beginning and end of the trail. The only downside to this trail is that the view never seemed to change but since the view was so grand it didn’t seem to bother me much.

Easy, peaceful. Great with mature toddlers/school age kids. Not accessible with stroller.

Just completed this last week. At start take off your boots through the creek. The stepping stones at end are way under water! Hike until the beach and then turn around and hike back, otherwise you are walking along road. I did encounter a Mountain lion. He was sunning himself on a rock between trail and lake. A few loud blows on my whistle sent him up the mountain. Easy and quiet, only saw 2 other hikers.
