It's a short day hike from Moon Lake Campgrounds to the Brown Duck Trail. There's plenty of camping opportunities in nearby East Basin. Please note some trail areas may be inaccessible due to winter weather. For more information, visit the Forest Service's page on Ashley National Forest: http://www.fs.usda.gov/ashley. Have a fun and safe adventure!

Distance: 2.8 miles (4.5 km) round trip

Elevation at trailhead: 8,500 feet (2,550 meters)
Elevation Gain: 900 feet (275 meters

Hiking Time: 1.5 - 3 hours

Difficulty: It's a short hike, but you are climbing a mountain, and you need to be careful to pick a safe route. We'll rate it a 4 out of 10.

Best Time to Visit: Pleasant anytime Tioga Road is open (June through October, usually), but we like it best of all early, when the meadows are green.

Crowd Factor: Not bad; the dome is large and a bit awkward to reach, so the visitors aren't too many or too close together.

Parking: There's a parking lot at the trailhead, which is also the trailhead for the Dog Lake trail.

Nearest Restrooms: At the trailhead (outhouse variety); restrooms with running water available at the Tuolumne Meadows Visitor Information Center a mile or so to the west.

Nearest Snacks: A quarter mile (0.4 km) west of the trailhead

Getting There: From Yosemite Valley, take highway 120 ten miles (16.8 km) to the Crane Flat turnoff onto Tioga Road, then take Tioga Road 40 miles (64 km) east to reach the trailhead at the far eastern edge of Tuolumne Meadows. From Yosemite's east entrance at Tioga Pass, take the Tioga Road west 7 miles (11 km) to the trailhead.

Lodging options in Yosemite National Park range from simple tent cabins to deluxe rooms at The Ahwahnee. Visit the DNC Parks & Resorts at Yosemite website for full descriptions, prices and online reservations. Reservations are available 366 days in advance and are strongly recommended, especially for the busy summer months! You may also make reservations by phone by calling (801) 559-4884.

If you aren't able to get a reservation in advance, try calling the week before your arrival, when rooms sometimes open up.
