“The views are spectacular, do this after you hiike the valley.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2013

Go to Taft Point as well, bring your camera, tripod and binoculars. Worth the drive. Parking big vehicles can be a pain and if your over 30 feet don't come, you'll get a ticket for sure.

“Bird's eye view of the Valley”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2013

Well worth the drive to Glacier Point and the short walk to the viewpoint. This place gives you a wonderful perspective of the Yosemite Valley from above looking down to the Valley floor and across to the numerous waterfalls, Half Dome and majestic Sierra mountains.
