You can actually drive up to within a few yards of Dome Rock, but park below for an easy hike under the pines. The rock provides some of the most spectacular views you can get anywhere. The sides slope down and are deceptively steep, so watch your young ones.

Super short and easy hike up to Dome Rock. There is an absolutely beautiful expanse of forest and mountains below to view and appreciate from the top. There is absolutely NOTHING between you and certain death here. The rock just slopes off into a sheer drop to the valley floor and getting anywhere near the drop-off will bring visions of what-ifs crowding into your mind.You will truly contemplate life here... through the consideration of your mortality. Enjoy.

Great views! At some times of the year you can drive on the dirt road basically all the way to the rock, or park off the highway and make it a real hike. I like it at sunset.

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.

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.
