Sentinel Dome, Yosemite National Park
(5/5 based on 550+ reviews on the web)
A notable rock formation in Yosemite National Park, Sentinel Dome sits next to another famous domed formation. You can hike to the summit at 1,264.9 m (4,150 ft) above the park's floor or travel there on horseback. While the hike is challenging, the payoff is a remarkable view of the moraines formed by the retreat of an ancient glacier. This rock's nearly spherical shape creates a remarkable sight among the craggy mountains, and you can peer down into Yosemite Valley from this viewpoint. Make Sentinel Dome part of your personalized Yosemite National Park itinerary using our Yosemite National Park vacation planner.
