North Dome is a granite dome in Yosemite National Park, California. It is the southernmost summit of Indian Ridge, 0.6mi north of Washington Column and the Royal Arches on the northeastern wall of Yosemite Valley. It can be reached by trail from the Tioga Pass Road, or by going up the Yosemite Falls trail and heading east. It can also be reached from Mirror Lakes by the Snow Creek Falls trail going north around Indian Rock and then south again on the Tioga Pass Road trail. The South Face is precipitous.

  • Dramatic rock formation. Overlooks the valley floor facing Half Dome. The spire is Washington column. The snow is still present in early March 2019. Crystal clear air.
  • Fantastic, challenging, but incredibly rewarding hike from Porcupine Creek Trailhead through beautiful terrain and magnificent trees, followed by a descent from one dome and climb onto North Dome will reward you with some of the most magnificent views in the park!
