“Spectacular Views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

Years ago this was the starting point for the Fire Falls over the granite cliffs down to Camp Curry below. Long discontinued as not natural to the park, there is still much to engage the traveler who makes the drive or hike to Glacier Point. Incomparable views!

“One of the best views in the world”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

You can hike here from the valley floor or you can drive there. From the point you can go for nice hikes or just enjoy the fabulous views! You cannot get a better view anywhere.... Don't miss it.

“Stunning”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

Well worth spending a day exploring the point and the many trails that lead off from there. Amazing views of the valley and the Sierras. In the winter, cross country trails are well groomed and provide an excellent source of exercise!

“Spectacular”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

This is the primo site for picture takers. The most amazing site in Yosemite short of the top of Half Dome. Granite for miles and miles. Pleny of places to relax and even take a nap.

You will need to take a long accent road that will take about 25 to 30 minutes. We went in May and saw plenty of snow when we were nearing the top. There are plenty of restrooms and a gift shop with snacks.
