There are several wonderful hiking trails in Yosemite National Park. Two easy trails can be found in the Mirror Lake/Meadow area. One is one hour (two miles) long, and the other is two hours (five miles) long. You can take a leisurely walk either along an old, paved road or along a slightly longer dirt trail to this area. Mirror Lake is actually a large pond in spring and a meadow the rest of the year. Despite this, you're still right at the bottom of Half Dome, and you'll find a beautiful view of it from Mirror Lake/Meadow.
