“Nice viewpoint up at glacier point...”
Reviewed 26 April 2012

Wonderful view from the top of yosemite.
However, other than height, seems that the Tunnel View is comparable.

“Another iconic viewpoint”
Reviewed 22 April 2012

if you're in yosemite and the road is open to glacier point just go! Its an iconic yosemite viewpoint for a reason! Go in the afternoon for nicer light for photos and be sure to stay for sunset to watch half dome turn pink!

“On the EDGE”
Reviewed 18 April 2012

No visit to Yosemite National Park would be complete without a trip to Glacier Point where you are nearly a mile above the valley floor looking down sheer rock cliffs. Views of El Capitan, Half Dome, Yosemite Falls, Vernal Falls and Nevada Falls and much, much more.

“One of the Best Views on Earth”
Reviewed 15 April 2012

This is definitely one of the best views on Earth. An absolutely stunning vantage point from which I judge all others. It offers breathtaking views of Yosemite Falls, Half Dome, El Capitan, and Yosemite Valley. A must see if you are visiting Yosemite.

“Long trip but worth it”
Reviewed 4 April 2012

We left Yosemite opposite of our entry inpart to visit here as well as the grove of Sequoia trees. This was the highlight of our journey as the entire panaromic vista wa here. Parkign was easy although a distance from the main area but the drive was extremely long and the last few miles were slow going. The space is laid out on a series of ledges and during our visit we witnessed someones wedding. If you are visiting Yosemite for the first time, it is definitely worth the drive to get an awe inspiring view of area. I did not notice any significant services at this location although restrooms were available. There were places to picnic if you bring your own. Basically, if I were to plan a return would be looking for a trail to hike around as it was very set off from the main action of the Park yet quite popular with the tourists.
