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.

Mostly Dry, Some Mud - Mist trail is wet always. The John Muir trail is closed so you can not do the lollipop loop. But you can take the Clark trail down to the bridge of mist falls for a different loop. Lots of people always. The Clark trail is a small part of the John Muir trail. It's the only part of John Muir trail open at this time

Muddy - Lots of stream crossings and water flowing along the trail. Mist from falls makes the trail slippery near base of falls.
