People visiting Yosemite National Park often miss this easily accessed site, due to the drive there. However when you step out to the rail looking into Tenaya Canyon, Nevada Falls, and the Yosemite Valley, you will be astounded at the beauty of God's creation.

The views are amazing from up here. Truly breathtaking. Take lots of snacks and water. If you are not in great shape like I was be prepared to be sore the next day. I would definitely do it again.

This is beyond words. I tell my children all the time that true beauty is found in Gods creation. And this spot is proof of his amazing design. Whatever you believe you will agree that this is phenomenal. It doesn't matter how many people are there you will feel a sense of peace of a feeling of being apart of... More

Yosemite is in our top five favorite national parks. The beauty of this national gem is almost without equal. The view from glacier point is in all ways worth the drive time. It gives a birds eye view of every major point in the park and has several areas where you can hike out to and be all alone to... More

4.8 miles of uphill terrain with switchbacks to get there but worth it for the spectacular views! Since it was winter, it was a bit icy and there are no bathrooms open till May at the top.

We took the bus up to Glacier Point and walked down. Still a workout by the time we got to the bottom but the views were awesome!

The most beautiful views in Yosemite! It is breathtaking. Do not leave Yosemite without coming here, or else you will be kicking yourself later on. There is a road (closed in winter) that you can drive up, but the best way to reach Glacier Point is to hike up the Four Mile Trail from the valley floor. Then take the... More

We hiked to Glacier Point while the road was closed. You CAN'T beat the view up there! In the winter, the ranger station and store is closed.
