Hiked this route during the Fourth of July week, 2016. Temps were ideal. I saw large trout in the river, so fishing was probably great but I didn't try. Stayed in Glen Aulin, the first night, which had bathrooms and buildings for guests, but wished in the morning that I had kept going, just a little bit further, down the river because there was a very nice, flat area for many campsites, just around the corner, which we're close to the river. Going down, into the Canyon before Glen Aulin and coming back up, out of the Canyon, before White Wolf, were the toughest points, by memory, though there was another difficult stretch, midway. Much of the time is spent close to the river but without a view. No bear problems, like I've had in other parts of Yosemite, though I used a bear cylinder, unlike when I used to tie food bags in a tree, years gone by, before there were bear cylinders. Barely any mosquitoes. Nice people. Hitchhiked a ride back to Tuolumne Meadows, after, with great fellow hikers, in the morning, around 9:00 am, since the bus did not come very often and drove home, to Bay Area, the same, long day, starting at 2:00 am. Met others, who started in White Wolf and had hiked the trail, more than once. There is a view of Hetch Hetchy but you may want field glasses to see it well, from the steep ridge. Most scenic views are actually from highway 120, through Tuolumne Meadows. But hiking along the river is particularly peaceful. Orhers did claim they saw bears, during their current trip and in previous years. year on this trail. I did not have GPS but recommend one, as phone won't receive signal and I have been lost before, which is not fun. Always stay on the trail in Yosemite, as they are too busy to keep track of people, like they used to. And pay close attention to the road signs, especially coming out of the park, as I have also missed turns, there. If you're not sure, stop and check the map. Since phones lose reception, a mistake can cost hours in big country. The hitch to Yosemite is that you have to get 5 miles into the park, the first day and you have to camp 5 miles from your exit, so plan to stay somewhere close by, the night before or have a long first and last day.

entered at Leavitt Lake and leave at Tuolumne Meadows in 2017 August. Fording is durable then. But feet are wet for most days. Scenery is beautiful.

My first ever backpacking trip. Hard and incredible. The views are outstanding, and I think it's easier to get to Half Dome this way than from the Valley floor.
