“Breathtaking”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

No better word for it - If this doesn't take your breath away you don't appreciate nature - Overlooking Half Dome and waterfalls on your right, the valley to your left - Every turn gives you amazing views- If you head into Yosemite GO HERE!

“worth the hike up there”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

you can of course just drive there or take the bus for 25 US$ but the 4 mile hike feels like more of an achievement! Great at night for the amazing stars.

“Well worth the drive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

The smoke from the rim fires obscured our view the first time we tried; two days later it was better for an hour or so. Our pics are so-so... the haze was always present. But on a clear day, this would have been spectacular.
