    Sunil Gunderia reviewed Sentinel Dome Trail

    about 1 month ago

    Incredible 360 views of Yosemite Valley (El Cap, Yosemite Falls (although dry on our visit), Half Dome, Nevada Falls and beyond) from the top of Sentinel Dome! Relatively easy hike from the trailhead though worth noting that the the hike starts at 7,500+ feet so if this is the first thing you do in Yosemite you may want to take it slow to acclimate to the altitude. A bit of scrambling over rocks and to climb the dome itself but nothing that difficult. Not at all shaded and we found it to be quite dry so bring plenty of water to avoid dehydration from the altitude and the sun. From our parking which was just beyond the trailhead entrance and back was ~2.5 miles and took 1:30 hours which included 20+ plus mins at the top taking in the glory of Yosemite from what had to be one of the best vantage points!!

    Sunil Gunderia reviewed Vernal and Nevada Falls via the Mist Trail

    about 1 month ago

    Tremendous hike from Happy Isle up to Nevada Falls. The walk from parking at Curry Village is almost a 1 mile to Happy Isle. We started on the Mist Trail at at 840 and reached the top of Vernal Falls in about an hour. We hooked up to John Muir trail for the rest of the way up to Nevada Fall rather than the route up next to the Merced which is about 1.6 mile. This route is a bit longer but does avoid a lot of additional stairs. Reached Nevada falls before noon and took JMT back down to the point it connects back to the Mist Trail thus avoiding the steep staircase down. Round trip to the parking lot was ~10 miles and on the trails ~8. It took us just under 6 hours including a long stop to enjoy the beauty from both Vernal and Nevada Falls. Elevation gain is 2k+ so bring at least a liter of water per person along with some snacks. Sneakers would be fine, I wore my trail runners.
