A large granite dome rising to an elevation of 8,100 feet, Sentinel Dome offers a breathtaking 360 degree view of Yosemite Valley from the Cathedral Rocks and El Capitan to Half Dome and Nevada Falls. It’s a fairly easy hike; besides the panoramic views, Sentinel Dome is famous for its now-fallen Jeffrey Pine, which, when standing, was famously captured in the 1940 Ansel Adam photograph that before it was killed by drought in 1977.
