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.

It is a super view to see all of Yosemite!
If you want a high view of the valley with a fairly easy hike this is your place. Go early as the parking fills up fast.
Nice hike to a beautiful view point.
Must visit on the way to or from glacier point. Take the sentinel done loop which includes Taft point. Not very strenuous and amazing views
Outstanding 360 degree views of Yosemite without too much of a hike to get here!
