If you love nature, if you love photography, if you love altitudes or scenic drives, this is a must visit site at Yosemite. As the ratings prove, it is the most scenic, awesome, must-visit point in Yosemite. Must visit if you are in Yosemite region. But be prepared - roads may be closed unless you visit it during summer.

One of the best views available in Yosemite. A bit of drive to get there, but facilities were good once there.

What a beautiful place, praise God for His wonderful creation. The road had only... More

1. Glacier Point is 33 miles and 1 hour 5 minute drive from the Yosemite Valley. It is on an offshoot of the road going south to Wawona and eventually Fresno. So it is not anywhere near the 140 and 120 routes leading to the Bay Area and the South Bay. 2. The road is closed during the winter, and... More

Glacier Point is an overlook with fantastic views of Yosemite Valley, Half Dome, Yosemite Falls, and Yosemite’s high country and is located at the end of windy, Glacier Point Road. You can drive to Glacier Point by traveling on the Wawona Road, either south from Yosemite Valley or north from Wawona. After traveling about 13 miles, turn on to Glacier... More

We hiked to the top, and it was challenging, but you can also take a shuttle, so there is no excuse to miss this beautiful view!

This is a must see bucket list item for anyone that loves nature. We were there in early May when the roads had just opened and the water was running perfectly after snow melt. So the waterfalls were spectacular even from this distance. A Must See!

If you are debating whether or not to take the drive, don't! It will be all worth once you get to the top and witness the amazing scenery.
