My Road Scholar hiking trip led us to the summit, 8117 feet! What a terrific view of El Capitan, Half Dome and all the rest! SUPER!

By starting early we had Sentinel Dome to ourselves to watch the sunrise and we saw a black bear! Such a lovely trail if you make a loop from glacier point to taft point parking area to taft point and back to glacier.

This hike is suitable for all levels of hikers. You don't realise how amazing the view will be till you reach the top. While you are up here also do Glacier Point trail.

This is a great short family hike that provides the view and sense of accomplishment for younger hikers. 360 views are amazing both of the valley and beyond

For a great hike in Yosemite, check this one out! It’s about a 3 mile round trip 3000 feet up looking into Yosemite valley. The hike is relatively easy/moderate for most folks and kids as well. Parking is tight however & we walked about 1/2...More

Hello! This hike is on the way to glacier point. You will see the signs for sentinel dome there is a small dirt parking lot with a restroom. It is 1 mile to the top of the dome and 1 mile back... So 2 miles total.
