Half Dome

Sights: Rising nearly 5,000 feet above Yosemite Valley and 8,800 feet above sea level, Half Dome is a Yosemite icon and a great challenge to many hikers. Although it's visible from many picturesque vantage points in Yosemite Valley and around the park, Half Dome is only accessible by foot. The 14- to 16-mile round-trip hike to Half Dome is not for you if you're out of shape or unprepared. You will be gaining elevation (for a total of 4,800 feet) most of your way to the top of Half Dome. Most would say the reward is worth the effort.

A permit is required to hike and climb the cables to the top of Half Dome. Click her for permit information.
