I Did it.

It is a stomp. Tough on top. Be careful. Most awesome. Fun romp up, with real danger. One false step at wrong point and I might have tumbled and become just a bloody smear... read more

It is a stomp. Tough on top. Be careful. Most awesome. Fun romp up, with real danger. One false step at wrong point and I might have tumbled and become just a bloody smear down the side of the dome. Be careful.

If you're in the meadows you'll want to take this short hike up to the Dome for great views. Shortest route is from shuttle stop 2. Steep at first but then rises gradually.

I am by no means a health person and the thought of climbing this rock when we first pulled over wasn't a thrilling idea. Nor was it while I was climbing (according to my health monitor it was about 20 flights of stairs) BUT when I made it to the top and gained my breath it was AMAZING!! 360 views... More

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
