We stopped here on our way over the Tioga pass road to stretch our legs. It is a simple climb up and you are rewarded with excellent views of the meadows and surrounding mountains. A great place to start a visit to Yosemite.

My 6 year old & I got most the way up. Impressive views & not too bad of a climb. If coming over tioga stop & have a snack, hike, and swim in river below.

To hike up this dome, park at the Dog Lake parking lot next to Shuttle Stop #2, and NOT the actual Lembert Dome parking lot. We were expecting this hike to be a lot more difficult than it actually was; from a distance, the dome (which is a couple hundred feet tall) looks very intimidating to climb. In practice, however,...

A recommended hike for morning or sunset; we usually access the trail from the Dog Lake parking lot to avoid crowds.

We took the trailhead at bus stop #4 (Dog Lake/Lember Dome) even though a shorter trail exists at stop #2 (we could not find it by car) The stop #2 trail head is much steeper that what we hiked - we went around the left side of the Dome and was pleasantly surprised that we made good time nearly reaching...

We spent our Memorial Day morning hiking to the top of Lembert Dome. The bottom half through the woods was the toughest part for us due to the steep hike combined with the altitude. Once you hit the split to Dog Lake or Lembert Dome, it's much easier. The actual climb up to the dome isn't too steep and is... More

Hiked after supper from Tuolomne Meadows campground. It was a steep but short 2.4 mile round trip hike. View from the top was spectacular and is a great place to just sit and enjoy the view. Try to get to the top with at least a half hour to enjoy the sunset. The view over the valley is amazing and... More

We didn't hike up Lembert but we did see it everyday from our camp ground. It is so mesmerising and breathtaking. Next time we will go up the top for sure!

From the parking area we headed up the trail north-northwest toward Dog Lake. It was 2.5 miles to the top of the dome on a steep and rocky trail. Yes, we liked the trail and the views. Wear shoes that stick to the rock as on top of the dome it is a little steep in places. On the way... More

Ever had the desire to climb Half Dome? Me neither, which led us to Lembert Dome. Started hike from Dog Lake parking lot and slowly made our way UP the trail. At about 8,700 feet, the air is thin so take it slow and drink water to avoid headaches. Most of the trail is nicely shaded, especially on switchbacks. Thirty... More
