Spectacular Views from the top!

A relatively short hike but it is a climb of over 800 ft. Enjoyable hike none the less and the pay off at the end is the 360 degree views from the top. It was my favorite spot in... read more

We were told the hike was only a mile but apparently there is a long way and a shorter way and we took the long way unfortunately. Once we got there, it was a little hard for some people to climb the dome but they got up eventually. At the top, the view is really good. You can see a... More

Beautiful hike. Steep terrain in spots but well-maintained trail. Mind your step- quite a bit of horse droppings along the trail !?!

We hiked this with grandchildren 10 and 13. Appreciated the lake at the end of our trail. Nice spot for a picnic and all enjoyed dipping our hot feet in the cold mountain lake. We also enjoyed the view of the climbers on the dome.

This was a little difficult hike - lots of uphill - but if you take it slow it is worth your time. We walked to Dog Lake past the dome to enjoy a nice lunch - make sure you put on some bug spray and have lots of water

Moderate hike but it is not very difficult to climb the dome for incredible views. you can also take short hikes to alpine lakes. We got a little lost and ended up getting dumped out on the road to hike back to parking lot. This road is dangerous with no shoulder. Definitely hike it if you have the chance

Yes, Tioga road offers some spectacular scenery and Lembert Dome, in the late afternoon light is a key feature.

Saw quite a few people scrambling up this but it is a bit of a walk from the parking and so if you are short of time, look only

Lembert Dome ("LD") is a terrific hike that everyone should do at Yosemite. The views from the top are amazing and it's much more accessible than other more popular hikes at Yosemite (namely Half Dome which is a 10 hour hike ). LD is right off the Tioga Road by the Tuolumne Meadows. There is a good amount of parking... More

We only had a limited time in the Park and chose this as our one hike. We took the short route from the Dog Lake parking lot. We have a 5 and 8 Year old and they had no problems. The altitude might slow you down but carry water and you will be fine. Take your time up...you will be... More
