Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Our first hike in Yosemite was up at Tuolumne area to Lambert Dome. We were by ourselves almost all the way up and then just a few folks at the Dome. What magnificent granite rock and views. Saw deer, but alas, no bears! I wanted to see one, but my wife, well, perhaps not.

Stopped at this dome the day after hiking Half Dome and my legs were still shot so I didn't do this shorter dome hike, but it would have provided an amazing view of the valley. Will definitely do it next time.

This hike from Tioga pass road is an outstanding hike if you want to go for less than 4 hours but <3 miles. You will climb about a 1000' from the Meadow floor to the top of lamber dome and be rewarded with spectacular views if you make the final 300' scramble carefully up the rocks. Enjoy!

Apart from the wonderful drive along Tioga Road which is worthwhile in itself, Lembert Dome offers a chance to walk up a dome without too strenuous a hike, as you start from high up to begin with.
We didn't go to the top as had other plans that day, but walked a little way just to say we'd done it.
Lots of other great places to visit along the Tioga Road - so give yourself enough time to see them all :)

Started this hike in the morning. It is on the same trail as Dogs Lake near Tulomone Meadows. Lots of little switch backs all the way up to the top. Total time we spent was about 4 hours to enjoy the views and some lunch. Be careful hiking up and down the dome as it can get quite tricky if you don't remember the way you went up. Use the ridges in the rock for better gripping. It can get quite windy so be careful when getting close to the edge. You get a nice view of the park and other sierras. You can also visit Dog Lake after if you're feeling up to it.

We didnt park at lembert dome to do the hike. We walked around the front face of the dome just for the fun of it but of course we didnt get very far. We were so happy to meet a park ranger to gave us the back entrance to the dome. We drove a little back and parked at the entrance to dog lake. We walked behind from the forest that saved us a mile walk. Its a very steep climb. The dome has incredible views. You have to be very careful. There are sheer drops. Even though the granite looks essy to climb some portions are smooth. Wear shoes with good grips. Carry water and an energy bar. There are areas where we were completely out of breath. We stopped got a gulp of air and water and carried on. It could just be the elevation. My son is 11 and he was able to complete the hike. It was a huge accomplishment for us and we enjoyed it.

You can see Lembert Dome from pretty much everywhere in Tuolumne Meadows. It is not an easy hike - the rating of moderate is accurate - but it's not exactly difficult either. Plus the views are amazing.

Hike to the Lembert dome is not really hard. We met some families with children and they made it to the top. From the top of course you can see gorgeous scenic view. Have a lot of water during the summer time.
