Sentinel is not too hard nut does give a real sense of achievement little ones will love it.

Taft point I think we walked to from the same car park dead flat but you need to have children that will do what they are told I would take my DD at 9 I would nota have taken her at say 6.

You have to remember you are high here and you get tired far quicker than you do at home.

From Sentinel Dome you can see the whole valley and get a great 360 degree view of the park. Taft Point is a bit scary, might not be the best place for children as there is only a very small rail but there are great views of El Capitan from above.

They can be reached from the same trailhead on the way to Glacier Point.
Thanks for your suggestions, I've looked at Taft Point and to be honest I think it's too scary for me. We might try the Sentinel Dome walk though, the views look amazing.

Just note that you are at 4000 ft valley floor and will walk up to about 5500 so you will feel it slightl, it is recommended that you should have about a litre of water each with you as you get dehydrated quicker.
I didn't realise that so thanks we shall make sure we take lots of water. Vernal Falls sounds great for us.

Ps make sure you take binoculars with you. If you need to buy some they can be got at a reasonable price.
Would again urge the first thing you do is the valley floor tour. This gives an overview which let's you get your bearings and a little history in an easy way.2 hours.

I'm so looking forward to the drive on Tioga Pass as all I hear is how stunning it is!
Will look at doing the valley tour, thank you for all your help

Our youngest child is 10 but I think Taft Point might be a bit too much for me. Sentinel Dome sounds fab though thank you.
