The drive to Glacier point was off of 41. near where we stayed at Yosemite West. we went there both during the day and at night. It was a long winding 16-mile road. During the day be prepared to make frequent stops take photos on the way and at night, you have to put your high beams on. Went there... More

Brilliant hike from Glacier Point all the way down to Yosemite Village. The trail is almost broken down into sections; the first is downhill and through woodland with incredible views of half dome and down to the falls, the second is the uphill midway point which feels like something from an adventure book and what I would describe as "real...

Having visited all of the major parks in the US, trekking the Himalayas, and touring Europe, Asia, and Africa, this ranks in the top ten spots. Parking can be difficult. We had a handicap parking permit, and drove another couple about a mile to their car. The parks department is missing a marketing opportunity, by not having cast models of... More

Worth the one hour round trip from the valley. We did it on our way out to save some time, but the view is incredible and gives perspective that you don't get from the Valley floor. I am acrophobic and normally find roads in Natioanl Parks terrifying, but the road up was quite easy in this regard. No sheer drop... More

Our third day at the park - We left the valley early (just before 5:00 am) and drove under the full moon, with almost no traffic, to watch the sunrise at GP. It was magical! There were no more than ten other people for most of the sunrise.

Went there during sunset and it was absolutely phenomenal. The majestic artwork of God bestowed by warm rays of Sun makes it a delightful sight. Environment is very calm but have to find peace among bustling tourists. A must go if in Yosemite National Park.

The drive up was interesting; we stopped many places. But the million dollar view was at the top, at Glacier Point. Wow was it gorgeous to look down into the valley. It was very crowded!! And the port-a-potties were overrun but other than that, we loved it.
