Permits are going to go quickly and I expect them to all be gone by 7:15 so be ready to go at 7:00 on recreation.gov.
It’s that time again when you can get into the preseason (hiking season) lottery for permits to make the hike to the top of Half Dome. Wait, what? You have to get a permit to hike to the top of Half Dome?
If you’re one of the lucky ones who got your permit early this is great news! If not you can still try for the daily lottery (see post for more information) to get a permit, if there are any left.
Registration for the Ostrander Ski Hut Lottery is almost over. Did you get your application in?
Thinking about hiking Half Dome in July? Start your computer and warm up the coffee maker, tomorrow is your day to get your permit.
