Interesting Facts & Highlights


Just a an easy 3.2 miles from Tioga Road at the Porcupine Creek trailhead, this is a nice day hike with a picnic lunch. The only natural arch in the park, it may also be the only arch in this area of the Sierra. This type of structure is usually seen in soft-stone formations, so it is a bit of a rarity. Just a mile or so down the trail you can catch North Dome and one of the closest spectacular views of Half Dome. Indian Rock was one of the original boundary points in the Yosemite Valley Grant of 1964. Named first in the Wheeler Survey of 1883, it was shown as early as 1865 as part of the Whitney Survey.
