Draw dropping. Takes your breath away with beauty of the scenery. In fact it`s so beautiful you could eat the scenery.

The drive to the Glacier point is a little tricky, but totally worth it. You get stunning views of the Yosemite waterfalls, Half Dome and the valley. Glacier point is not open all through the year, so you have to find out before you plan a trip there. You have a nice little gift shop and a cafe attached to... More

Try to get there twice - daytime first so you are aware of the positioning of the mountain ranges, waterfalls etc and then again at night to see the Milky way and shooting stars. There is a night sky lecture at 9 pm - unfortunately it was getting too late for us. Memorable place.

You might think it's a long way driving up all the road to Glacier Point. However, it's worth the ride. Great views of Half Dome (come here for sunset) and you can even do some hikes from this point.

Wouldn't have missed this but obviously neither would hundreds of other people! Very crowded - at least there were enough potties - the concessions aren't great - pack a lunch and be patient with the crowds - great views on the lookouts on the way up too...... We missed the turn - signs aren't great-

I have done 6 hiking trails in Yosemite and the Four Mile trail from Yosemite Valley up to the Glacier Point was by far the most beautiful (but also one of the toughest) I have done. From the valley it is approx 7.5km (I did it in 2.5hr) just up to Glacier Point, and when you arrive at the top,... More

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
