Enjoy scenic views of Tuolumne Meadows from the top of the dome. Lember Dome (9,450 ft.), located near the Tuolumne Meadows campground, is one of the best place to enjoy the views of Tuolumne Meadows. To hike Lembert Dome, you start from the Dog Lake parking lot on Tuolumne Meadows Lodge Road, follow the trail for Dog Lake at first, cross Tioga Road and continue hiking up the trail until you meet the junction for Lembert Dome. At the junction, continue hiking westward until you see Lembert Dome and use caution to scramble up to reach the top.

Soooooooo.....I guess we didn't take the trail up.
But we definitely took it back down. It was nice. The views are great, I love how you can see sparkly Tioga Road winding through the trees and the mountains in the distance. Peaceful, we got lucky and it wasn't cherry crowded at the top.

For little effort (if moderately fit) the views are expansive and outstanding. Hiked a few hours before subset and there were very few people on the trail. Loads of room up top if you want to spread out from other people. We walked up the adjacent rock also - another great outlook but very windy. Started at dog lake car park just near visitor centre.

So cool! Go to the top, spectacular view of Tuolumne Meadows. Worth an hour and a half of your time.

Started from the Lembert Dome parking at 8am and had the hike to myself (super special considering its summer time in Yosemite). The hike takes you up a good enough climb through the trees and is well marked. Dog Lake adds an additional .3 out and back from the main trail.
The view from the top was amazing!! I looped around to the left of the rock face at the top to summit. So glad I did this hike!!!

A very easy warm-up hike to get used to the high altitude of Tuolumne Meadows.
