Yosemite National Park Map

Nice little nature trail some steep portions but really nice view points. Great for pictures and a nice view of Tenaya Lake.

This hike was surprisingly beautiful and away from the crowds. We went to watch the sunset & star gaze. There were a handful of people there, but we were alone not long after the sun started going down. Not a very difficult hike for someone in average shape. Very short & not too much of an uphill climb. Definitely suggest passing the general parking area for the trail and continuing down the road just a bit until you get to a service road on the left hand side. There is a small parking area directly across the street. You can hike this service road right up to the trail which will cut a good portion of the distance off of your hike:-) The 360 degree view of Yosemite is well worth it! Just stunning!

Did this as part of a much longer hike from the valley. Awesome but it was pretty low light through this section. One of my favorite golden retreivers was named after this hike. I miss Tenaya!

Fantastic trail. As it is a paved path I can understand why it is considered moderate; however... my wife mentioned several times during the ascent that it she thought it was anything but. I loved it any want to go all the way to Half Dome next time I'm in the area.

Great little walk for an amazing view of Half Dome and the valley floor.

Great little hike! Pretty leisurely most of the way, the last little stretch is more difficult because it gets really steep but that only lasts a couple minutes while you get to the summit.

Great views. It’s a great trail of you are a little short on time. It’s not as crowded as the trails from the valley floor.

Amazing views!

Easy hike but beware of a bear that has been seen around the area after you turn right at the sight of sentinel dome.

Very easy paved trail, done several years ago! Very very crowded. Not the way I like to enjoy nature but is great for all skill levels and the falls are pretty. Just felt very much like a "tourist attraction".

Lovely swimming spot, but cold! Also beware of the fast currents.

Easy hike with my family. My 8 and 9 year old boys did great! Hiked right up without having to take any breaks, other than to snap a few pictures. Beautiful views from up top. Well worth it!

2.2 mile hike round trip. Minimal effort with amazing views. If you have time, do Taft’s Point trail too. It’s only 2.2 round trip too from same trail head starting point.

Amazing views. Well worth it. Both of my parents made it up no problem - I ran ahead... literally ran. It took me 18 mins to run. Took them about 40 minutes to get up. WELL WORTH IT!! On the way down I did run into a very large black bear (looked like a grizzly but someone corrected me that there aren’t any grizzly in Yosemite...). Bring a whistle or be loud. All worked out and was a great hike!!

No way is this a moderate trail. It’s an easy trail. I walked up there with my family and brother who had a 4 month old strapped to his chest and my 2 1/2 year old nephew. My nephew only needed a little assistance through 2 or 3 tricky areas but over all he walked the whole thing by him self. At the top there is outstanding views. I would recommend to anyone looking for an easy hike with an outcome of amazing views

Wonderful hike. We went back by John Muir trail which give you a beautiful sight of the fall from above. Starting our hike at 8am we had the chance to see a bear and a bobcat on the trail.

Easy going walk via the nature trail up to mirror lake. Enjoyed all the boulders that had fallen from the cliff above (half dome).

Several doe and fawn in the meadow upon our arrival and not startled as we kept our distance and admired North Dome and Half Dome.

Beautiful hike to warm up before hitting up Halfdome. We started from Taft Point and went clockwise to Sentinel Dome.

The amazing thing about this area is that so many of the trails connect! I will most definitely be back and do more hiking, but this time around, Yosemite was just a half-day stop. And if you’re doing the same thing, get here early and head to this spot! I’m currently on a huge road trip and this may have been the most amazing sight my eyes have ever seen. Simply spectacular. Additionally, another cool thing is that there is great phone connection so I was able to facetime and share the view with some of my friends and family back home. All that to say, I’d HIGHLY recommend this lookout point of the valley, whether you’re just stopping by the park for a few hours, or hiking some of the trails around it!

Short and easy Hike.... the reward...? incredible 360 degrees view!

We walked the mile long trail from the Taft Trail/Glacier Point Junction. Well worth it!

This was an excellent hike for our group, comprised of several children, ages 5-14 and my mother in law. The kids loved scrambling over rocks and fallen trees and especially loved crossing the lake and dipping their toes in the cool water! Couldn’t have asked for a better first hike in Yosemite!

This was such a beautiful experience! The steps right before the fall we’re a bit tough but you have to keep going it is well worth it!! I want to return!

Simple walk to amazing views! Worth going at sunset as it lights up Half Dome!
Kids loved being able to be free, climb rocks and having flashlights.

I hiked up here from Yosemite valley which was extremely difficult and would not recommend for everyone. You can drive to a parking lot and it seemed like everyone that was up there did that. This was the best view that you can get from Yosemite valley other than half dome. 100% would recommend.

Easy. Fun. But lots of people.
