Not too many ppl when we arrive at 3pm, probably because they are controlling visitor per day in national park. Smoke was not crazy today, view was okay. -Oct 16 2020

Glacier Point at about 7000 ft elevation can be reached by car, shuttle bus (but not during the pandemic) or several strenuous hikes from Yosemite Valley. Even if you can’t walk well, you still get stellar views. If you can hike several miles there are a lot of options on where to go from here. Most people enjoy the short but steep hike to the geology hut. From there you can see the Yosemite Valley floor below, Yosemite Falls in it’s entirety. From Washburn Point about 1/4 mile before you reach the Glacier Point Parking Lot, you can see the entire length of the mist trail with Vernal and Nevada Falls, and the upper 1/4 of Illilouette Fall. (Here you can get a good view of some of the Panorama Trail, which starts at Glacier Point, and goes past all 3 of these waterfalls, about 8 miles to The Valley below). The star of Glacier Point is Half Dome. It’s so large and seemingly so close it feels like you can touch it! Photo opps abound. The Four Mile Trail starts here, going to Yosemite Valley in 4.4 miles and 3,200 ft elevation loss. The first mile is more of a rim trail, and loses/gains only 250 feet. Walk to the point where the switchbacks start, and turn around to retrace your steps. It’s a mile of stellar views of Half Dome, Yosemite Falls, and the Sierra Nevada Mountains - at a fraction of the effort it takes to hike the entire trail. The road to Glacier Point is not open year round. Check road conditions before going. Wintry conditions or fire can close the road. Generally it’s open end of May through October. If it’s open during your visit, even if pressed for time, this is a must-do! Bring your lunch and sit on the steps of the amphitheater!

This attraction/view will truly take your breath away! And, it's accessible via road before you go through Tunnel View. In fact, you may want to take the right turn at the entrance as you are driving in before proceeding further into Yosemite Valley. Once you make the right turn, you'll drive some distance before arriving at this remarkable vista point. For us, driving up we didn't see much traffic, even with the limited capacity during the coronavirus period. However, once we "arrived" at the vista point and parked, we came upon quite a group of tourists (much like Tunnel View). One can only imagine what it must be like during "normal" park periods. We were able to find a parking spot right away. Walking from there to the vista point is only a relatively short distance. You'll see Half Dome standing out first, and some helpful signage along the sidewalk area, including restrooms. Have your photography equipment ready and loaded because you will want to take many shots of this area. Whether it's phone camera or regular camera, be prepared to take multiple shots to capture it all. Take your time to take in the beauty and majesty of this natural wonder. Even in mid-summer, you will find several of the falls still flowing if you look close enough. We found both Nevada and Vernal Falls with water flowing. That made up for missing Yosemite Falls water flowing. You may also wish to take the walking/hiking paths that permeate the perimeter of Glacier Point. There's a very famous vantage point that Ansel Adams made famous nearby. This is a "CAN'T MISS" part of the Yosemite Park experience. So, get up there.
