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 Run: 4.5 mile hike in from the Porcupine Creek Trailhead to North Dome.

From the valley up Snow Creek Pass, passing Indian Rock before taking in North Dome. Stunning.

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!
