Hiking Yosemite

Hiking Yosemite

One of our favorite hikes in Yosemite is up the Mist Trail, which is one of the ways to get to Half Dome. It’s exhilarating to climb the slippery steps (maybe a little more fun on the way up than on the way down).

We typically hike to the base of Half Dome, look up at the hikers climbing up the cables running up Half Dome, and decide that we’ve gone far enough.

Mist Trail 2

Highly recommended to bring a rain poncho for this section

Half Dome

If you look closely, there is a line of crazy climbers barely visible on the cables climbing to the top


An amazing waterfall on the Mist Trail

The National Park Service now requires permits to climb the cables. See for more information
