Ragged Peak lies about four miles north of Tioga road in Yosemite. The summit provides an excellent view of the Tuolumne Meadows and northeastern Yosemite backcountry, with probably the best view of Mt. Conness. The trail is sandy and made up of talus closer to the peak. There are a few creek crossings on the way to the peak.

Varying views and a relatively easy stroll up to the base of Ragged Peak. Once you get to a certain point on the trail to Young Lakes, turn right and head for the Ragged Peak pass that is to the right of the summit. Then start the slogging journey to the top of the peak. Keep in mind the side you hike up is significantly less exposed and less steep than the North face of the peak. My group tried to get up to the peak, but we were about 5 feet short (a bit wary of the precious looking block summit), but could see the Northern side of the park and the entire Cathedral Range. We saw a total of maybe 10 people in the entire hike.
