We did this trail at the end of a very long hiking day. We already hiked about 9 miles before this so this was really something to finish off our legs. Half way up we were exhausted and every muscle was hurting. It was or...More
This hike was a tough one for me. The entire trail is uphill and my body didn’t agree with the elevation. It was totally worth it!! Most beautiful scenery throughout the trail. This hike led us to Glacier Point and it’s amazing!! When we were...More
I took the one way Glacier Point Tour up to Glacier Point to do this hike. It was an easy hike going downhill and didn't seem like a hard hike going down. However, by the time I got down my calves were on fire. I...More
We hiked from the bottom and up to the Glacier point. If you don´t have any ailment I can recommend for you to go from the bottom up, it is not hard to walk but give you a bit of a pulse. But then you...More
I grew up nearby. This place was my backyard, so we were lucky enough to go here often. This is hands down my favorite hike ever. I hiked this trail solo, with my bf, with friends and each time brings a different adventure. I know...More
Fortunately or unfortunately, we found ourselves on a day when the road to Glacier Point had been closed due to the forest fires and so we decided to attempt the hike up the Four Mile Trail to Glacier Point. We are close to being seniors...More
A steep 4.6miles to Glazier point then you can neatly join the Panorama trail and finish with the Mist trail. A real shock to join the Mist trail and find masses of people. The whole walk makes a nice walk of just under 15 miles....More
This is a magnificent trail once it leaves the valley floor but being a little out of shape will come home to haunt you. It is called the Four Mile Trail for a reason - to make it sound like a walk in the park....More
We took the one-way bus to the top of Glacier Point based on reviews I had read here, so we could do the 4-Mile Trail hike down into the valley. Many suggested it would take about an hour and a half. It took almost twice...More

My wife and I did this in early June, our only issue was slipping down the gravelly trail. Make sure your treads are good on your sneakers, but normal summer attire would be fine. The panorama trail is considered a more scenic hike down, but its about 9 miles long. If you take the shuttle bus to the top, make sure you take an early one. We took the 10am shuttle, and got dropped off around 11:45. There is a nice snack stand at the top of glacier point you can have lunch at before you hike down.
Thanks for your response.
With further reading we have decided that two days are really necessary to accomplish what we want. We are now planning to take the hikers bus and do the Panorama Trail one day... More
Thanks for your response.
With further reading we have decided that two days are really necessary to accomplish what we want. We are now planning to take the hikers bus and do the Panorama Trail one day, then drive up another day and do Taft Point, Sentinel Dome, Washburn and just walk down the Four Mile Trail to the start of the switchbacks to get the views then return to Glacier Point.
