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.

This is my second trip to Yosemite and I was still impressed with the beauty of this location. I could do this ride over and over again.

We love the view. It was breath taking. It was little difficult to hike but you can do that. 👍🏼
Incredible 360 view of Yosemite for such a short and relatively easy hike. It’s a must do.
