The trail had some incredible views. You can see needles lookout for most of the trail. It's a quick walk. There is a gate that says road closed keep off. I took that as pedestrians only lol
I parked in the highway where the sign said dome rock and walked from there. Like I said, very short hike

A quick walk to a spectacular view! It's a short distance, but all uphill So you could become short of breath if you are out of shape,nespecially at that high of an altitude. I would suggest decent shoes because you will be walking on slick solid granite with a possibility of loose rocks causing some loose footing for the beginner or for children.

Definitely more of a walk up hill then a hike if you park in the designated parking lot. But awesome views, good spot to hangout, eat lunch and see the sights.

Stunning views

Not a hike at all more of a walk up a hill. When you get up the hill it's a sight to see.

Hiked to this peak from near R-Ranch which is mainly along roads for a more of an all day thing and to get the miles and the elevation gain once on top the views of the Kern Gorge are just amazing. It was a nice clear day.

We call this Elephant Dome, it's off of Nobe Young Creek and Camp Whitsett a boy scout camp.
Fished here all my life, thanks DAD for wonderful years of family fun.

Doesn't really qualify as a hike unless you park off the main road and hike the quarter mile or so on the dirt road. It's more of a scramble up the backside of the dome, but the views are spectacular. It's off the beaten track, so it keeps the crowds away. Just a few die hards quietly enjoying the view.

Great views of the surrounding mountains and the stars. Played night frisbee as well!
