Description

Hiking up Lembert Dome at any time of day is stunning, however, I find it's best in the early evening. This vantage offers sweeping views of Tuolumne Meadows, the Cathedral Range, and other parts of the High Sierras. The Range of Light, as John Muir called it, comes alive at this hour. Note that you should not attempt the summit if there is any sign of a clouds/storming in the sky, because it become very dangerous to hike in a storm due to slippery granite and the exposure.

Short Hike: Park at either the Lembert Dome parking lot and hike via Dog Lake or park at the parking lot for the PCT near Tuolumne Meadows and hike the Lembert Dome Trail.

Family Friendly: This is a very easy hike, and kids will love clambering over the rock formation, even if they don't appreciate the sunset.

Snowy, Mostly Dry - A few areas with running water on trail, but nothing too daunting. Still some snow on the sub-dome, which made footing a bit sketchy in areas. Cables are still down, so be prepared. Fantastic hike!

Make sure to bring warm rain gear for little ones. We were up there yesterday, and it was too cold for them.
