This is a must Do in Yosemite. there are several trails along Glacier point road that offer awesome views, but the view from the Geology hut at sunset is my favorite!

Longer drive but worth it for some good views. Small gift shop with limited food bailable. A must stop.

Fantastic view point especially at sunset. You can spend hours to enjoy the view in all directions Warning it can be rather cold there

One of the most incredible views I've ever witnessed. You could spend ages here just taking it all in. Incredible views of Half Dome which you can just about see tiny dots of people summiting. Beautiful!

Don't miss this incredible view! You can see the valley below as well as the surrounding mountains. It's like being on top of the world. Very impressive.

We are lucky to live close enough to visit Yosemite a couple times per year. No visit is complete outside of winter without a visit to Glacier Point. In the summer, it’s great to grab some ice cream at the store. We love the panoramic...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
