Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

On the way to Soda Springs sits a little cabin built in early 1900’s but still in use today. I would not make a special trip to see this, but definitely plan on stopping by on your way to Soda Springs. Don’t forget to turn around for a nice view of Unicorn and Cathedral peaks.

In the middle of the wonderful Tuolumne meadows close to the soda springs...pop in when you do the short walk as its well worth hearing about the area from the knowledge guide

A nice, relatively flat walk from the car park to soda springs and then on to the memorial lodge. Lovely to get some fresh air, stretch the legs and admire the springs, the lake/river and the lodge. Handy toilets too!

This is basically a flat walk but Parsons Lodge is cool and there was a naturalist there to answer questions. The Soda Springs is adjacent and that is interesting as well.

Parsons Memorial Lodge is a short flat hike from the Tuolumne Meadows store, restaurant and service station. There are at least 20 photo opportunities on the hike. Being mostly flat, it is an easy hike across a meadow, a bridge that crosses a stream and also a stone path across the stream in another location, depending on the route walked. A ranger is assigned to the historic lodge which was built in 1915. The ranger is very knowledgeable and there is a huge table topographical map plus other free maps and pamphlets available in the building. There are other buildings with signage at the site as well.

This is a one-room house that was originally built by the Sierra Club as a shelter. It has been converted to a mini-exhibit, mostly photos of Sierra Club founders and other Yosemite Park pioneers. There is a ranger stationed there who can answer questions about the area.

The place is about 2/3 of a mile North of the highway, the trailhead is called Upper Soda Springs and is just to the East of the Tuolomne Visitor Centre.
