The Meeks Creek Waterfalls cannot be overheard while
hiking the start-out section of the
(TYT) in the Meeks
The TYT—connecting Meeks Bay with Tuolumne Meadows at
Yosemite—ascends from its trailhead near the Meeks Bay Campground
(eleven miles south of Tahoe City)
to Lake Genevieve and
Crag Lake (the first two
Tallant Lakes) and continues farther into
the Desolation Wilderness.
The waterfalls are only about three miles away from Meeks Bay;
a little more than half the distance to Lake Genevieve.
On your uphill hike, it takes a short side-trip
to the left to stand in front of the cooling
spray of cascading Meeks Creek. Stay safe between the slippery rocks!
