    If your interested in seeing my ascent up the cables, here is my video https://youtu.be/op_Y2oYV8aQ

    Completed this day hike on 6/1/2016 cable permit pass. Total hiking time took around 12hrs (add 1 more hour staying at top of the dome). Start time was just before 4:30am, parked in the designated area off of Happy Isle Loop Rd, which was closest to the beginning of The Mist Trail Head. They say it's a 16 mile round trip but my Fitbit showed 20 miles (additional miles walking to and from parking lot i suppose). Initial water total for 2 people was 7 1/2 liters. Definitely not enough water and needed to filter on the way back from the dome, off the Merced River, about 2 miles from Nevada Falls where the water was calm. We arrived back to our car at 5:30pm.

    It's a steady elevation gain hike from beginning of trail head to the dome. The hardest part for me was the 8 mile downward return hike, putting a lot of stress on my toes. Legs were left sore the following days later.

    I loved it so much, the weather was beautiful! I've considered returning next year in May and ascending, this time with the cables down and possibly summiting Clouds Rest.

    Again If your interested in seeing my ascent up the cables, here is my video https://youtu.be/op_Y2oYV8aQ.

    1st timer on the trail. Great to take the kids but be sure to educated them on identifying poison oak. It's all over the trail route. Beautiful weather, many stream crossings. Yes, u need bug spray for the pesky nats.
