Mount Hoffmann is the geographical center of Yosemite National Park. Beginning at May Lake trailhead at 8,346 ft we will follow a trail that skirts along the south side of the lake. From the summit there are excellent views of the Yosemite High Country and looking south you will see a clear view of Clouds Rest and Half Dome hanging out just below.
