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

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
