It's closer to 9.6 miles than 4, but it has gorgeous views the whole way up and is well worth the effort!

I've hiked down and also hiked up then back down. Wonderful views of the valley, Yosemite Falls, Half Dome, and then the huge panorama from Glacier point when you get to the top. Often closed in winter due to snow and ice, but a cooler...More

Reviews on this trail are all over the place but I guess it is just in perspective. The trail is really not difficult but not as easy as a stroll in the park as some suggested either, it is wide enough for 2 persons to...More

The most memorable hike ever! The 4 mile trail should actually be called the Almost-Five Mile Trail to better reflect the distance because the round trip is almost 10 miles. Bring lots of water if you plan to go on a hot day like we...More

This is a strenuous trail due to the steep elevation gain from the valley floor to Glacier Point. Unless you are looking for the workout there's no particular reason to try it. However it's worth getting a taste of it by hiking down a mile...More

My family and I enjoyed descending from Glacier Point down this trail during our recent stay in the park. While not a good option for young children because of the length and nature of the hiking, kids over 11 should be able to tackle the...More

We hiked to Glacier Point from Sentinel Dome parking ( some 2-2,5 hours ) and then our kids took the hike DOWN from Glacier Point, so the other way that most people do. Great hike, wonderful views and only one section was rather steep. Took...More

As a New Englander in fairly decent shape, It was my first day out west and I had a heck of a time climbing and acclimating to the lighter air on this hike. I had to take it quite slowly on the way up. After...More
