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).

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.

Relatively easy hike/climb to the top. Only steepness of ascent, very high altitude, and acrophobia will keep you off the top of this beauty. Great views of tuolumne meadows and the granite peaks surrounding it. If your fears get the best of you keep going until you get some kind of view as it is well worth it. I've seen... More

Easy access to a great view makes the hike up Lembert Dome a must every time we visit Tuolumne meadows. Dog lake and Lembert dome make a Great first day hike to get your boots warmed up.

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.
