Because Hetch Hechy is not as well-known, it’s much less crowded. When we arrived at Yosemite on a Friday afternoon the first week in June, we did a drive through Yosemite Valley and then checked in at our Lodge.
We were surprised to find the entrance to Hetch Hechy was a five-minute drive from Evergreen Lodge. We easily found ample parking to start exploring.
