The panoramic view from Sentinel Dome is one of the best in Yosemite. You'll get a bird's eye view of large rock faces and thundering waterfalls all just a short hike from Glacier Point Road. This hike is a great way to enjoy the incredible views without the crowds of Glacier Point.
It was windy at the top at 8100', but we decided to have lunch to enjoy the views. There weren't too many other people at the top, even though it was peak season. We headed back down to our cars to continue to Glacier Point.
