The most amazing view you will see. Its a hairy drive up, especially if in a Winibago, but doable. Don't miss.

We had spent the morning hiking Taft Point and we (husband 80, and me 72) and we were ready to call it quits. Our companions said: "you can't stop now. Have to see Glacier Point". And they were right. We've seen a lot of Yosemite over the last 15 years but had somehow missed this spot. It's one of the... More

Do NOT miss Glacier Point!!! It was the highlight of our visit. It is spectacular!!!!! There are several view points for vistors to take photos. Nothing is strenuous there, but the car ride is up a mountain road,, so be prepared.

It was a bit crowded, we were there on a Tuesday in June, but the views of Half Dome are worth the drive out there and a walk around. You also get a great view of the Nevada and Vernal falls across the valley. But the shots of half dome, that is what this stop was all about. Do it!

The hike up is just breath taking. It's really pretty but strenuous but the reward in the end when you reach glacier point it's worth it. The views are just stellar. If you hike up early you will most likely beat the crowd and have the view point almost to yourself.

Glacier Point climbs right behind Curry Village. It is a spectacular sight. Getting around via bike on the valley floor and looking up at all the peaks and waterfalls is a nice way to experience Yosemite.

My mom (56) and I (29, female) visited Yosemite during the week in June, and Glacier Point had the most amazing views by far. I highly recommend exploring Yosemite Valley first so you have a better appreciation of what you're seeing down below. There is one rather scary switchback right before you get to the top, but the drive is... More

The trails were perfect for all. Bathrooms plentiful, parking ample. The views from here were amazing. Of course there is the gift shop we have come to expect. Worth the ride!
