View from Olmsted Point The stunning alpine scenery along Tioga Road, Highway 120, running east-west through Yosemite, is a great destination for summer hiking and camping. Wildflowers bloom in open meadows and clear lakes reflect the mountain peaks. Due to the elevation, this road is only open in summer and it opens later than Glacier Point Road. At the eastern entrance to the park is the Tioga Pass with a height of 9,945 feet. Here you will find attractions from Olmsted Point and Lake Tenyaya and the surrounding hiking trails. Near Tuolumne Meadows, you can head to the Lembert Dome and climb the inflated back side of the dome.
