The trail to the mirror lake is short 2.5 mile hike from the parking lot near happy isle. It’s a seasonal lake, gives you fresh clear view of the half dome from the base of it. The reflections are beautiful in the clear water.
There was still fresh snow when we went there in February and the lake was partially frozen, the views were still breathtaking!
We also took a walk under the bridge to capture reflections of Yosemite falls!
And the drive to the Yosemite Valley can not complete without an obligatory stop the the Tunnel View!
