“Nice little stop”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 7, 2013

Great, quick stop for a beautiful shot right after the tunnel (such a cool tunnel!). We didn't need to stay for longer than 10 minutes. Beautiful, but definitely a tourist spot - lots of people bustling around. We saw a man painting the scene and overheard him saying it was $850 for an 8x10 piece. …..Just go yourself and take the picture - it's prettier anyway.

“Classic Yosemite view!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 4, 2013

If you check the photo collection of most visitors to Yosemite you will find photos taken of the kids and chipmunks at tunnel view. Angel Adams took classic photos and the rest of us have snapshots or keeper photos from tunnel view. After many visits the camera is left in the car and it is possible to sit on a rock and simply watch the valley, clouds, and light as the valley constantly changes it's appearance.

“This should be on everyone's Bucket List.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 2, 2013 via mobile

Tunnel view is just jaw droppingly beautiful, it will render you speechless!! If this isn't on your bucket list then add it, I can't recommend Yosemite enough, it is a natural wonderland with every hour that passes the beautiful rock faces catch the light differently and project stunning images!

“should be on your bucket list”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 1, 2013

If the view as you come out of the tunnel does not take your breath away, nothing will! It is probably the most photographed spot on the planet- and with good reason! It is beautiful anytime of year, anytime of day!

“Enduring for All Time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 20, 2013

There are so many sights to see in Yosemite that you think the last view can't be topped but Tunnel View is absolutely at the top. Cameras are in everyone's hands or on tripods to immortalize the sight. This is not a view that you are going to see except in Yosemite and it is a grand sight to see.

If you are up to a hike there is a path in the back of the parking lot on the other side of the road that takes you to the original view that the stagecoaches saw when coming to Yosemite. The tunnel was cut to make access easier and safer. Spectacular view of Yosemite!
