There many domes in Yosemite but this is one to not miss. It is right off the road and a good moderate hike. It starts in the forest and ends at scramble up a huge rock. The beauty of this dome is you can go up anywhere one feel comfortable. Also the rock has very good grip so you don't... More

Lembert Dome is a great view. I had walked a ways on the road from another trail with fantastic views to see the dome. It was a beautiful late afternoon with blue, clear skies and the dome glowing in all it's glory. Next time, when I have more energy, I will have to climb to the top.

This is a "must" stop along Tioga Road. Kids will love scrambling up this steep and somewhat slippery granite monolith. It's like a giant slide...no steep cliffs if you climb the face. Views are greater the higher you scramble. Lie on your back, relax and watch the clouds float by. An awesome spot for a picnic. Enjoy!

From the same parking lot you can hike up to dog lake for a nice view of an alpine like and then veer left on your way back and hike up to top of Lembert Dome. It is an easy / moderate grade up to granite dome and then you can easily zig zag up the back side of the... More

My first hike within Yosemite NP. Did not disappoint! I didn't have the time or inclination to spend 10+ hours hiking up Half Dome - nor did I want to contend with the conga-line crowds there either. So, I headed over to Lembert Dome. What a wonderful hike. There is a decent size parking area located at the foot of... More

We did Lembert dome as a first hike for the kids. Aged 9 and 11 they loved it. Hiked right to the top as a fairly easy trip. But the views are well worth the small effort involved to get to the top through lovely forests. Kids now want to do more hiking!!

As we began our day of crossing the Tioga road in Yosemite National Park, we stopped to hike to the top of Lembert Dome. Lembert Dome is a high granite dome similar to many in Yosemite. At the top it promised great views of Tuolumne Meadows and other surrounding domes and peaks. We started on the trail and it seemed... More

Beautiful view. The best views are down the road towards the back of the dome. We almost missed the turnoff because it is not marked well.
