Vogelsang High Sierra Camp

To reach Vogelsang High Sierra Camp, begin across the road from the Dog Lake parking area (Tuolumne Meadows Shuttle Stop #2). The first two miles of the John Muir Trail are relatively flat, following the Lyell Fork of the Tuolumne River. Follow the Rafferty Creek trail as it splits from the John Muir Trail to begin the 1,200-foot ascent to Tuolumne Pass. Follow the signs to Vogelsang High Sierra Camp. You can continue beyond the camp to Vogelsang Lake and Vogelsang Pass. The hike is 15.8 miles and takes about eight hours.
