Worth the climb

After the climb you are rewarded with great views of Tuolumne Meadows and the mountains that surround it. A little crowded by Yosemite high country standards.

CAUTION: This hike is entirely above 8000ft elevation, and so it is imperative that you pace yourself on this almost entirely uphill hike. It is so worth it, as the views of the meadows, the Three Mountains (Dana and her brothers), the Cathedral Peaks are viewed no better than atop Lembert Dome.

We had hoped to picnic next to a running stream; however ended up at Lembert Dome area, which was good....but not great. Hard to find a parking spot for starters. Worked out ok. Good and recommend.

This hike offers a good balance of moderate effort paired with massive views. It is also one of the quieter hikes in Yosemite, a huge plus. The granite on top is a wonderland to explore, just be careful up there!

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
