Half Dome Trail Map

Hiking to Half Dome is very long day trip, on foot, uphill half the way, with excessive elevation gain and loss. Leave toward the trailhead before day break and get back after sundown. No kidding: 17 miles round trip. You must be in excellent shape to tackle this trail, as it involves discipline and strength. Super scenic waterfalls and viewpoints all along the way. Some prefer to do an overnight trek w/ backpack, food and permits.

Half Dome Yosemite

Yosemite National Park

The geology of the Yosemite area is characterized by granitic rocks and remnants of older rock. About 10 million years ago, the Sierra Nevada was uplifted and then tilted to form its relatively gentle western slopes and the more dramatic eastern slopes. The uplift increased the steepness of stream and river beds, resulting in the formation of deep, narrow canyons. About one million years ago, snow and ice accumulated, forming glaciers at the higher alpine meadows that moved down the river valleys. Ice thickness in Yosemite Valley may have reached 4,000 feet during the early glacial episode. The downslope movement of the ice masses cut and sculpted the U-shaped valley that attracts so many visitors to its scenic vistas today.

Dinkey Lakes Wilderness Trail Map by Tom Harrison

CREEK FIRE 2020: Much of the Sierra National Forest was badly burned in a recent wildfire, but this Dinkey Creek area was spared. The huge fire moved the other direction – from Shaver Lake north and then eastward.

That means this Dinkey Creek Area may become more popular, along with high elevation lakes – Courtright and Wishon Reservoirs – now that this the only unburnt region around.

At least the nearby Sequoia trees in the McKinley Grove didn’t go up in flames.

NOTE: Much of the Sierra National Forest may be closed to the public (for years) due to forest hazards, loggers working, and general fire cleanup. Contact the local USFS Ranger station at Tollhouse to find out what areas are indeed open.

Since Yosemite National Park is one of the most popular destinations inside California, several cartographers make overview maps and hiking maps for this busy park. Much of the area is covered in snow half the year and roads are closed annually. So know before you go and call the rangers. Double check campgrounds, road conditions and weather, all prior to trip departure.

Tom Harrison is has an extensive list of trail maps which include the low elevations of Yosemite Valley, as well as the higher elevation backcountry. Waterproof trail maps, topographic w/ camps, canyons, climbs, creeks, lakes, peaks, all terrain.

National Geographic also makes a series of colorful Yosemite maps, which span the whole park from west to east. Waterproof, tear-resistant, folded, two-sided maps.

Wilderness Press makes a couple too!
