Sentinel Dome hike is awesome!

It's short and offers GREAT value for your workout! We were happy to have our hiking poles as even minimal elevation gain is a challenge for some old sea-level folks, but it's a... read more

It's short and offers GREAT value for your workout! We were happy to have our hiking poles as even minimal elevation gain is a challenge for some old sea-level folks, but it's a totally pleasant walk and extremely rewarding.

We pre booked a bus through the Yosemite website to get to the top as didn't fancy the drive or strenuous walk. The view from the top is simply stunning, with lots of viewing points and information of what you are looking at. We had a wander away from the crowds to find a quiet spot to take photos and...

Fantastic stop & view point within the natural wonder that is Yosemite National Park. Easy to moderate short trail to walk down to enjoy a lovely photo opportunity as well as the clean air & sounds/silence of the surroundings. Chipmunks & an eagle also spotted whilst we were there so keep your eyes open !

Were travelling through Yosemite from Mariposa. During an iternet search saw reference to Glacier Point. The photos were amazing. Decided to add a couple of hours to our trip and go there. The drive up is very twisty and narrow toward the end but worth it. The views are fantastic. Go early or you'll be queing to get in the... More

We were worried about limited parking but no problem.The toilets were however disgusting from a smell point of view.The ammonia smell was almost choking. However a small issue when you see the views.The scale of the area is breathtaking. The most impressive area in Yosemite by far.

Enjoy the winding drive to the observation area for Glacier Peak. You will be standing over 7100 feet above sea level and 3100 above the valley floor. The feeling looking over the edge is difficult for the mind to comprehend ( very much like the Grand Canyon). Great photo ops.

During my family of 5's stay in Yosemite National Park we drove up to Glacier Point and arrived at 930am. At first sight the views were absolutely awe inspiring to say the least. Half Dome is so close you feel you can touch it. The view down to the Valley below is great. The view beyond Half Dome is breathless.... More

Worth the long and windy drive to the top, which also has excellent view points along the way. The views at the top really are spectacular

If you travel to Yosemite - Glacier Point is a must. The drive up is very scenic and the views are beautiful. Many places to stop and hike.

The beauty of Yosemite can be summed up in the view from Glacier Point. It's unbelievable! The granite rock formations are just beautiful and the views are the best in the park. There's even a waterfall in the distance! Just plan on long delays because it's so popular with limited parking. I'd suggest visiting here before going into the valley... More
