  • Address: Mirror Lake, Yosemite National Park, CA, USA
Located in Yosemite Valley, Mirror Lake is famous for its reflections of Half Dome and Mount Watkins when the water level is high enough; to be fair, it's more of a pond than a lake. But it's a pretty pond that can be accessed by an easy two-mile round trip stroll from the valley floor.

If photographs are what you're looking to capture, be sure to visit in the spring and early summer; birders will enjoy catching glimpses of white-headed woodpeckers and martens. If you’d prefer a circumferential view of the lake, there’s a five-mile (eight kilometer) loop hike that is sure to satisfy.

Practical Info

The Mirror Lake Trailhead is located at shuttle stop #17; a paved trail will take you directly to the lake. To access the loop, take a right at the stone bridge. Visit on a calm day in spring or summer for the best reflections of Half Dome and Mount Watkins.
