Taft Point and Sentinel Dome Loop
This 5.8-mile hike takes you between two stunning lookouts (Taft Point and Sentinel Dome) that gaze over the entirety of the valley throughout the majority of your hike. Once you reach the top of Sentinel Dome, you are provided with a 360-degree view of Yosemite National Park (including Half Dome and Yosemite Falls), and Taft Point allows for some of the most picturesque views of the valley’s plunging cliffs. This hike has unlimited scenic views, but be prepared to work for them as you will overcome about 1,200 feet of elevation while you hike! Your naturalist guide will provide you with an abundance of interesting and interactive information about the wildlife, vegetation, and geology you experience while on your hike. If you are looking for a beautiful, dynamic, and iconic way to view this part of Yosemite National Park, then this is the tour for you!
