Tenaya Lake/Sunrise Trail

Highlights

  • Clouds Rest is an arete -- a thin, almost knife-like ridge of rock formed when glaciers eroded away solid rock to form Tenaya Canyon and Little Yosemite Valley.
  • The northwest face, mostly solid granite, rises 5,000 feet above Tenaya Creek.
  • Although there are many peaks in the park having far greater elevation, Clouds Rest's proximity to Yosemite Valley gives it a incredible visual prominence.
