Watch where you are and watch small children at all times. The tunnel view is a very busy place, and understand it is a view point. Definitely worth the picture and to take in the view for a few moments. Bring binoculars for viewing closer, this viewpoint takes in a lot of space, and I am glad I had a... More

When I changed the photo to black and white it looked like a page from an Ansel Adams book.

This is the stop in the Park that is a must see. This is the vision that you will never forget. The tunnel is an incredible man made achievement.....the view is heavenly.

We had a very limited time in Yosemite - Went to the village and heard a volunteer recommend going to tunnel view, then drive to glacier pointe. That is exactly what we did. This view was stunning

Yosemite is such a big place, a couple of days can't do it justice really. Its all about cramming in the views in the time you have, and boy is it worth it. Tunnel View has to be just about the best view of natural landscape in the world. When you get out of the car and look back it... More

Though there are a lot of people here it was a great stop to see El Captain and Half Dome in the same place! I am still awed and amazed at the formations of these mountains! Dogs are welcome in Yosemite but are not allowed on trails!

Go early in the day to miss the tour buses. It is really hard to park and get in and out with the buses there.

This is the first view we had of the park and it was a great place to stop and take in the vast size of the cliff and valley. Even if you don't come in this way its a great place to go see.
