Overview

Great views of Tenaya Canyon, Merced Canyon and Yosemite Valley from one spot. Basket Dome, Clouds Rest, Quarter Domes, Half Dome, Glacier Point, Sentinel Dome, Three Brothers and part of El Capitan are all viewable from the summit. It's a relatively easy hike.

Half-Day Hike: 4.5 mile hike in from the Porcupine Creek Trailhead to North Dome.

Dry - Ongoing dustiness on trail which causes some slipperiness. Smoke from recent local wildfire obscured AM views but cleared by the afternoon. Note this is more like a 13 mile hike up and back down.
