“Another super vista within Yosemite”
Reviewed October 22, 2012

This viewpoint is a must do as it is simply on the roadside when entering Yosemite Valley. Although a little busy you can enjoy an iconic vista incorporated into a quick and easy stop.

“Classic View of Yosemite valley”
Reviewed October 20, 2012

If you're familiar with some of Ansel Adams' winter photos of Yosemite you'll recognize this view. Worth stopping if passing by on US 41, but don't get up early for sunrise unless there is fog in the valley or clouds to the east to provide some color.

“Great Opening Page”
Reviewed October 17, 2012

Yosemite just creeps up on you as the road rises over a ridge-line and the vista unfolds before you.

Tunnel View is a great spot to stop and take in the views from a safe vantage point that affords some room to manoeuvre for photographs.

It's a great opening page to Yosemite!

“Amazing”
Reviewed October 17, 2012

The view, like all views in Yosemite, are truly amazing. They probably should have a little more parking, but if you can find a place to park, this is an amazing view. Be sure you have your camera ready!
