Hi everyone! I unfortunately did not win the lottery drawing for this year. Is it dramatic to say that my heart genuinely hurts? Lol If anyone has a open spot and would allow me to tag along, I would be so happy. 562-544-5498 Instagram: @kelzsmilez Happy Trails!

HikingGreat!IcyScrambleSnow

The trail itself was breathtaking! You hike pass 2 amazing waterfalls and then through the little valley and alongside the river. We did this route April 9th and the cables are still down so we only hiked to the sub dome and were able to touch them. Others have gone up all the way with the right gear but unfortunately we didn’t have that. When we got to the base of the sub dome where the 400ft of stairs are there was still tons of snow covering it all. We were able to trek up the side on the snow but it was pretty sketchy and dicey at times. Only used hiking boots but used old deep footprints to keep feet secure in the snow. The top was more than I had imagined. With half dome right in your face and the panoramic view of mountains surrounding you, it makes it all worth it. Also perk of hiking it out of season is the solitude and having the whole peak to yourself. Maybe passed 3 people after the waterfalls. The trek down sub dome was much sketchier than going up but we took it very slow and steady. Then the whole hike back was beautiful again but as always, hard on the knees. Overall, amazing hike that will make your calves sore for a few days and get you to experience a rare opportunity to have half dome to yourself.

I regret starting so late, Thursday at 11am, lots of people, many groups going very slow. Get there as soon as the sun rises and you should be one of the first to the top. Bring a blanket and lots of food to have lunch at the top. If you have a water filter there are several streams along the way

HikingGreat!Rocky

A hard trek but WELL worth it! We hiked in On Clouds and layered up, but we quickly shed our layers & got down to our base layer 30 minutes in. Have at least 2L of water and plenty of snacks. My husband & I are not seasoned hikers, but not beginners so we were able to tackle this trail. There are some must-dos for this trail! Here they are: 1. Start EARLY! We were on the trail by 8am but I would recommend a 7/7:30am start. The crowds are starting to increase. 2. Go past Yosemite Falls and get an even better view at Yosemite Point. That made the hike worth it for my husband & I! The view of Half Dome is beautiful! 3. Don’t forget to look up and out as you climb in elevation and even on the descent. It is incredible how high this hike takes you!

Trail is completely free of snow but there were some occasional spots with water running on the trail. I continued on to Yosemite Point where the views were breathtaking. Heavy traffic in both directions on a beautiful Sunday with mild temperatures even at the higher elevations.

To call it hard is an understatement but not impossible! I took many breaks on the way up(and down). It is a challenge for sure but worth the hard work. The views on top are spectacular. A very regarding hike indeed.

HikingGreat!Snow

Beautiful hard hike that at this time was also a bit of an adventure. We walked to Stanford point with no snow shoes so was adding a nice challenge to it. Lost of fallen trees and sometimes hard to navigate and find trial at times. Definitely worth it but harder then we thought due to the early season conditions.

HikingGreat!

Trail was in good condition. Left at 8:30am and had to move quickly to pass the already growing crowds. Generally a great hike - could have done in trail runners but glad we wore approach shoes / boots because it’s slippery as you get closer to the falls. Snowpack is pretty much gone at the top. Bring 2+ liters of water. It’s getting toasty!
