This should be on your destination list while visiting Yosemite, if the roads are open. A friend and I we camped just down the road (~15min drive) east of the lake at Tuolumne Meadows Campground. The weather amazing and warm averaging high 80s for the entire week long trip. We made several trips to Tenaya Lake to cool off, and enjoy the sun. The beach's have fairly coarse white-ish sand made of granite made from hundreds of years of glaciation and erosion, and by mid day the water is a beautiful deep shade of blue. There are several day use areas to enjoy, I would avoid parking on the road if possible. There was a lot of traffic and hazards caused by people's bad parking along some the narrow 2 lane roads that pass the lake. One night at the beginning of the trip we came and set up to photograph the night's sky. I will definitely visit again.

Never done this hike, but tried to do it with a friend. Got to the mile 2 marker and parked in the turnout. When we started to walk up the road to the "trail head" We were stopped by an older guy that claimed it was private property.
It looked as though he was in the process of planting trees right where the trail head would have started. Not having a definitive answer and not wanting to push my luck we turned around, left and went to hike somewhere else.
Can anyone validate or disprove his claim? Id really like to go back and photograph the falls. Thanks
