While Half Dome and El Capitan seem to get top billing when it comes to hiking Yosemite landmarks, a hike to the summit of Clouds Rest is second to none for its 360 degrees view of the surrounding park and beyond. The narrow ridge to the summit and the sheer drop off to the north exhilarates even the most experienced hiker. The hike is about 14 miles, round trip, and is rated "strenuous."
