Yosemite Wilderness Nelson Lake GPX Route

A few months ago, some friends and I backpackedĀ to Nelson Lake in the Yosemite Wilderness near Tuolumne Meadows. Nelson Lake is a little more than 5 miles from the trailhead at the Tuolumne Meadows campground. I couldn’t find a GPX file to load into my GPS watch so I made my own and thought I’d share it with you! We followed the route pretty closely and it worked for us.
