Half Dome in a Day

The Half Dome hike in Yosemite is truly a trip of a lifetime! Hiking Half Dome in a day consists of a 16-mile round-trip trek that takes all day and ascends nearly 5,000 feet, passing two majestic waterfalls and ascending a steep cable route before arriving at the top of the famous 8,842′ granite dome. While this is one of the most strenuous Yosemite hiking tours we offer, our guides will take the necessary time to educate you on the natural history, geology, and prominent figures who helped shape Yosemite as we know it today.

Half Dome is the signature landmark of Yosemite National Park and the most photographed natural landmark in the world. Day hikers will begin their journey in Happy Isles and ascend hundreds of steep granite steps via the steep Mist Trail next to both Vernal and Nevada Fall. This hike culminates with a steep cable system where you will climb the last 425 vertical feet using a 1/2-inch steel cable handrail. While it is a guaranteed adrenaline rush, our knowledgeable guides will provide guidance and techniques to keep you as comfortable as possible while ascending. Once atop this famous landmark (featured on the 2005 US Quarter) you will have unparalleled views of Yosemite Valley, Glacier Point, El Capitan, Clouds Rest, Tenaya Canyon, and almost the entire Yosemite high country.
