Project: Tenaya Lake


Tenaya Lake

Location: Yosemite, California

Within the pristine landscape of Yosemite National Park lies Tenaya Lake, a magnificent High Sierra lake surrounded by granite domes, lodgepole forests, and Yosemite’s vast wilderness. Sherwood Design Engineers was selected to work with Mithun and the Yosemite Conservancy to master plan and engineer this ecologically sensitive site in order to address goals associated with resource protection, ecological restoration, visitor use, and visitor safety. The project included improvements to the trails around the perimeter of the lake, Murphy Creek, various beach areas, natural wetlands, visitor use areas, parking areas, and even Tioga Pass Road, a federal highway that follows the northwest side of the lake.
