As all the reviews indicate this is a do not miss! Wonderful views of the park and lovely drive. We were her in mid September and they were still struggling with fires. I can only imagine how beautiful on a clear day.

This was one of the most epic hikes and views at Yosemite. If you miss this one, you have missed the best part of the park. We hiked up the 4 mile trail and then did the panoramic trail past the Nevada and Vernal falls....More

Amazing view of the park, highlight of ending a day of hiking! Can get a little busy at times with limited car parking spaces nearby. Best to be viewed when it's a bit less crowded to get the best experience.

Great drive through a tunnel with winding roads and great scenery. The views from Glacier Point can't be beat. Half Dome takes on a very ominous view from Glacier point and has to been seen from that vantage point. Lots of hikes start or finish...More

The Park offers a star gazing at night and it was wonderful. The drive to Glacier Point was beautiful, one can see the whole valley from there. The scenery is amazing. This drive is a must!

I don't believe there is a free shuttle to Glacier Point from the Valley. There is a free shuttle from the ski area during the daytime, but you have to drive there to catch it so may as well drive all the way for more... More

The sunrise is beautiful here and if you are able to get here early enough, you can also avoid the masses of tourists that arrive later in the morning. From a photographic point of view, the morning sun can make it tricky to... More
