About this spot
Siesta Lake was formed when a cirque glacier, which was located on a ridge above the lake, left a moraine that formed a natural dam, creating the lake. Now the lake offers one of the few locations on Tioga Road with a safe parking area where you can get out and stretch your legs and take in the scenery.
