The view here is amazing! It is a very iconic and stereotypical picture of Yosemite. The parking lot kind of sneaks up on you and it is just on the outside of the long tunnel, hence the name. It's very easy to drive by and miss it if you are not paying attention. The parking lot is very small; way... More

If you want to have great light for your picture you need to get there early. You will also have room to move around freely at that time. Otherwise be prepared for the waves of busloads that flood the tiny parking space

This was a stop on our first-day bus tour, and while the view was great, it was swarming with tourists.

If this is your first time to Yosemite this place has to be on top your list. It is a view that is hard to describe -- water falls, half dome, clouds rest, el Captiatan, etc etc etc

We stopped here 10 times overall! Each time we passed by from Wawona to Yosemite Valley. Differenttimes, differentlights, all worth the stop

The best view of the Yosemite Valley. The view is truly majestic. Be part of the post card. Take time to just sit there and enjoy the view. If you are leaving late, wait for the sunset before heading out the park.

Coming out of the tunnel and viewing Yosemite was awe inspiring. Had seen pictures but being there and experiencing in person takes your breath away.

This is on the way to the valley if you are driving from the south or to enter the park via 120. It is rather crowded mid day, so plan to arrive early to enjoy the view without disruption from other parties.
