Activities & Features


The trail up North Dome meanders through a conifer forest along a paved path for the first three fourths of miles. As you come across trail junctions follow towards North Dome and prepare yourself for close views of Half Dome and Cloud's Rest. Once you can tear yourself away from the stunning scenery make sure to take the short side trip (0.3 Miles) to Indian Rock, which is a natural arch. What makes it unusual however is the fact it is made of granite. There is camping available in Yosemite National Park.
