We planned our trip only a couple months in advance, so there were no openings at the campgrounds. Consequently we decided to backpack, and this was the best trail available. I'm very glad we did this. Yosemite can be so crazy busy. Hiking the Pohono...More

We walked the Pohono Trail as part of a loop from Taft Point to Sentinel Dome. It was about 5 miles. After Taft Point, the trail is clearly marked to go to the left rather than go back to the parking lot. It winds through...More
