Sentinel Dome and Taft Point hike Go Here.

This hike will reward you with some of the most spectacular vistas in the entire park.  It's an easy 1 to 2 mile hike, depending on which direction you go, that anyone can do.  If you hike the entire trail you'll walk about 4 miles total.  This is a perfect hike for small children (be VERY careful around the cliffs), seniors, etc.  If you REALLY want to be impressed, go to Sentinel Dome on a clear night for a jaw-dropping view of the stars.  By the way, every night is a clear night from June 15 until October.
