Exceptional view.

This is such a wonderful place to stop. The views of the valley and great monoliths of Yosemite are right in front of you. Amazing!

Breathtaking is the only superlative that even comes close to describing the park and the scenery. If you are planning trip to California make sure this is on the itinerary....

As this is one of the most famous view points in Yosemite we wanted to make sure we got our own photos and it really was beautiful. It was really busy so you just have to be patient to get your pictures from all the angles but its so stunning we didn't mind just looking out at it all. The... More

There was such a build up of excitement the closer we got to the tunnel. It reminded me of the drive to Jalama Beach--a lot of driving to... More

The best views down the valley - best to go early or late in the day as it can be very busy at other times.

An incredible view too! Easily accessable by car. However, there is limited space in the lot and it can be crowded. Also a stop on both tours of the valley offered by the park service.

The driving distance between our lodging, Wawona Hotel, and the Yosemite Valley took a little longer than we expected. Once we exited the tunnel, the turn off for "the view" caught us unprepared to stop. We found a spot a little further down the road and pulled off. We found the view much less crowded (no one else around us)... More

A beautiful sight if you aren't the one driving the car. Very few spaces to park safely and take a look or a photo.
