Description

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.

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.
