Trip Reports > TR - Yosemite, Grand Canyon of the Tuolumne Aug 17-20, 2020 Happy Birthday TPayne , Joedaddy , toms_strat ! I am making the trek from White Wolf to Tuolumne Meadows with a group of five in two weeks. Its mountainous views are only accessible on foot, which guarantees an off-the-beaten path backpacking adventure.
