Pohono Trail

Most commonly hiked one-way (downhill) from Glacier Point, the Pohono Trail rewards hikers with several viewpoints of Yosemite Valley from the south rim. East to west, these views include Taft Point, Dewey Point, Crocker Point, and Stanford Point. An optional 0.5 mile (0.8 km) side trail gains the summit of Sentinel Dome.

During the spring through summer months parking may be limited at both ends of this trail, Glacier Point and Tunnel View. We recommend using some of the overflow parking areas near Glacier Point such as: Washburn Point or the Sentinel Dome parking lot.
