The trail starts strenuous as you hike up towards the rock. The total ascent is about 300 meters relative to the Tioga road. The magnificent views from the top are totally worth the efforts to reach the top. Be very careful as you climb to the very top because it's a steep rock and there are no fences there (obviously)....

Our family visited Yosemite several times, but mostly during winter and spring, while Tioga Pass is closed, so we were not able to visit Lemberg Dome area until last June, getting into the park through the Tioga pass. The sceneries from/near the Tioga entrance is as spectacular as those at the Yosemite Valley, but not as crowded. There are many... More

After visiting Elizabeth Lake, we decided to take the hike to the dome. The dome is quite large. The hike was nice and the views very good.

When asking rangers for recommendation on hikes in the TM section of Yosemite this was never mentioned by any of them Also on many of the websites dedicated to hiking Yosemite this is often poorly rated, we have no idea why as we LOVED it. We did the Elizabeth hike lake (nice) and then immediately did this hike, its uphill... More

Don't miss this place and make sure you get up there. The views are gorgeous. It is a steep hike, but I was able to make it, so you will :-)

This is the first dome have ever hiked and I am so glad I waited. The hike it self was much longer than I thought. But it was a nice , relaxing enjoyable hike. Until you got to the base of the actual dome, then it became steep. I would say very steep, but the kids that were running around... More

This looks like an easier hike than it is. It doesn't take much to get up the hill but getting to the very top is tricky -- very steep, so the climbers find it easier than the average hiker. Great views from wherever you stop on the mountain.

The views from Lembert Dome are incredible and well worth the reasonably stiff trek to the peak. The last part of the accent is up onto the dome and walking across rock with no shade so can be rather hot in the summer. The walk is best approached with reasonable footwear (not flip flops). If you are planning to visit... More

I used to do this hike as a child and it's still one of my favorites. Nice views, and the hike isn't too difficult.

This is a nice hike up the back of the dome. There are beautiful views from the top of Lembert Dome.
