Some interesting mountain peaks surround Tuolumne Meadows, and Unicorn Peak is by far one of the most unique and eye-catching peaks in the area. Its horn-shaped peak, jutting out an unusual angle, draws your attention and warrants photographic exploration. Unicorn Peak is one of the first mountains you see whether you enter the Tuolumne area from the east or the west. The peak rises to over 10,800 feet and along with Cathedral Peak forms the two most interesting shapes in the region.
