About this Hike

Mount Dana sits on the eastern border of Yosemite National Park, astride the Sierra crest just south of Tioga Pass. Forming the eastern edge of Mount Dana Massif this beautiful mountain towers at an astounding 13,057 feet, making it the second largest peak in Yosemite. Just off the east side of the plateau, sheer rock walls drop thousands of feet down giving you a grand view of Owens Valley and surrounding country.
