velodurtRoute Climbed: Sentinel Dome Trail Date Climbed: August 22nd,2002  Sucess!


This has to be one of the best short hikes in Yosemite! The views are great and the trail is only 2.2 miles roundtrip. Everyone who visits this great park should take the time to hike this trail. We loved it! And don't miss Taft Point also(at the same trailhead), great views from there as well. Check out our photos and report on our website:

THe trail is under our MOUNTAINS section. Thanks.

This is a great "bang for the buck" in terms of scenery (awesome) vs. effort to get there (easy.) Nice 360 degree view of everything when you get to the top. I was disappointed that the gnarled pine tree is in such bad shape. There were around 8-10 people on top, not bad compared to all the hordes at Glacier Point.

We spent the night on the summit, though I can't vouch for the legality of it. We bivied, no tents, food, or camping gear, just a couple bags on the ground, no 'improving'. If you want to try it I suggest similiar tactics so Ranger Bob doesn't start patrolling and give you the boot. We also came in late at night and left before the first tourists arrived with their monster cameras. Sitting in the full moon, with the waterfalls roaring in the distance makes this 'summit' worthwhile.

This is a easy hike via a short trail that leads to the base of the dome and a short scramble takes you to the top. The views on top are outstanding, you have 360 degree views of everything to behold.

On both occassions, there weren't much crowds as the area has a lot of hikes and although this is an easy one, you may have to share the top with only a few other groups during the weekend.

Unfortunately, I remember nothing about this hike other than the fact that I did it and there was an old tree on top.
