Yosemite's Half Dome is a granite rock reaching 8,842 feet. This large formation is a popular hiking destination for many people around the world. Half Dome is a rigorous hike and the use of cables is required. Come in good physical shape and previous hiking experience may come in handy. Reach the top and marvel at Yosemite's magnificent panoramic views.
