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.

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.

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.
