I'm not conditioned, don't hike much, but am fairly active so this hike was a nice one. Not used to the altitudes so I had to stop a few times when I was pushing upward and starting to suck wind. Plenty of places to stop and rest for that, easy to find shade. The view from the top of the dome was definitely worth it.

We hiked here from Glacier Point and it was definitely worth it. The unobstructed 360 degree views were incredible.

This is the easiest hike in the park for the payoff -- only a mile of easy uphill. the view from the top is amazing, from El Cap and Yosemite Falls right below you to Half Down looming to the east.

Moderate hike which is around 2 miles round trip. The actual dome is steep, but manageable. There are spectacular 360 degree views which make the climb worth it!

It remains a nice viewpoint and an easy hike (although parking can be hard in season) on a typical granite dome in Yosemite. I have been there on many occasions but not in the last 25 years so I was sad to find that the beautiful old twisted Jeffrey pine at the summit had died and fell down (or somebody killed it). Too bad since it added a lot to the uniqueness of that summit. Still worth the effort to get there as there were plenty of flowers and animals along the trail and even living on the dome.
