Glacier point offers a convenient drive up to one of the most majestic mountain views ever. After parking your car and a quick stroll up to the view, you can look down several thousand feet to the bottom of the Yosemite Valley. To your right you'll never get a better view of the profile of Half Dome. Across the valley,... More

The most rewarding path to get to Glacier Point is by walking up the 4 mile trail which is accessed from the Valley floor on Southside Drive just a 3 minute walk south of the Swinging Bridge & picnic area. if you arrive fairly early you should be able to park on the side of the road very close to...

It's a must for anyone who visit Yosemite. The sightseeing is the best I have ever been. If there is a place made by magical creatures, you have to go to glacier point to see it.

This viewpoint is not located on the main road, you have to take a detour (around 15 km, 30 minutes). But it's absolutely worth it, this is one of the most unforgettable views in the park. You are so high that it feels like you can see all the park from there. It's always crowded here and it might be... More

At the top of the world here, you have a great view of the Yosemite Valley and Half dome. There is a short walk and it is wheelchair friendly. Parking can be hard sometime but make sure you don't sit and wait at first spot because there is lots of parking at back of parking lot. The restrooms are a... More

Wow. What an amazing view. Be sure to go for the sunset, this is beautiful. You will need to leave early as many others will drive there at this time and it's difficult to find a spot to take a photo on a calm night. Most people were really accomodating and moved to let our family get a shot.
