Glacier Point offers an awesome panoramic view of many of Yosemite's greatest features! I HIGHLY recommend driving up the 16-mile road - you'll be rewarded for doing so. My family was there in October - less people, and more unpredictable weather. We hit a lot...More

This was the first stop we made on our day trip to the park. We were there before the crowds. Our guide, Rick was very knowledgeable and gave us important information that we were able to use on our 2nd day in the park.

Depending on if your'e coming for an early morning sunrise or sunset shot. You have to plan accordingly for either. If it's sunrise, plan to show up at least 30-45 min early, parking will be easy to get but if you're looking for tripod space,...More

Starting at Glacier Point your options are the 4 Mile Trail, the Panorama Trail or the Pohono Trail, neither of which are good round-trip options to end up back at Glacier Point without doing 8 or more miles. If you want to... More

I haven't been to the park in September, but I would expect long delays at Glacier Point. We also visited in the shoulder season (May), and had an up to 90 minute delay. It depends, of course, on what you want to do in the... More
