Description: Daily, dawn to dusk. Out and back during daylight hours only! For any walks in YNP, carry more water than you normally would. Your reward is a swim in Tenaya Lake when you return. Clouds Rest, a massive granite formation just northeast of Half Dome in Yosemite Valley, is one of the defining hikes in Yosemite National Park (YNP). For casual visitors, it ranks with Half Dome and North Dome as one of the most recommended hikes in the valley and for viewing the valley. Geographically, Clouds Rest lies in the center of nearly every interesting feature in YNP. Great views are to be had of Half Dome, the Clark Range in the south, nearly all of Cathedral Range, and out to Matterhorn Peak and the Sawtooth Range. 13 km walk to Sunrise Lakes rated 4+; 5 km walk around Tenaya Lake rated 2.
