Tuolumne Meadows to young Lakes:

The three Young Lakes, nestled under soaring Ragged Peak, offer a large selection of camp sites, some in heavy woods and some at the timberline. 

Just a minor note: I noticed some confused hikers returning early, they only went as far as Delaney Creek. Apparently, they couldn't find the continuation of the trail from the creek bed. However, I had no problem finding it.
