Lembert Dome Loop Trail Improvements

Lembert Dome Loop Trail Improvements

While hiking along the popular Lembert Dome Loop Trail, you will see some of the most spectacular views of Tuolumne Meadows. This project improved the wet and muddy sections of this trail.

Sections of this trail were wet because they passed through fragile wetlands. This trail restoration project rerouted these sections of trail to a drier, more sustainable route. The surrounding wetlands were then carefully restored, and natural water flow was re-established.

This multiyear trail restoration project provided hikers with a drier and safer trail, so they can enjoy views of the surrounding wetlands that are now returning to their natural, beautiful wilderness state.
Working together, we are creating sustainable trails that keep hikers dry and wetlands wet.
