At the trailhead, turn left to head toward Taft Point and The Fissures. Your walk is easy at first, through forest and wildflower-filled meadows (in July). Watch your step around The Fissures and at Taft Point, where you'll enjoy magnificent views of Yosemite Valley.
At the trailhead, turn right to head toward Sentinel Dome. Once near the dome, the trail meets an old road. Follow the road to the northeast side of the dome, where the incline is less imposing. Scramble up the side of the dome and, at the top, enjoy a breathtaking 360-degree panorama.
Note: never climb domes during a thunderstorm.
Both Sentinel Dome and Taft Point are a 2.2 round-trip hike from the trailhead, but in opposite directions.
