A special place within a special national park. No matter how many times I visit, I am always blown away.

“Stunning”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 February 2012

Long drive, very hot in middle of summer - buy with lots of cars and people. But worth it, amazing views.

“A MUST”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 February 2012

This is a winding, mountainous road but safe even for motor homes. (No gas!) At the top is the most magnificent view of the Valley floor. Also a small souvenir shop. Not to be missed!

“Stunning views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 February 2012

Glacier Point was the part of Yosemite I was most looking forward to visiting, and it did not disappoint. I drove up and it did take a while to find parking. But then I spent a few hours looking at all the viewpoints, taking photos and eating lunch at the store. It was really beautiful since it was a clear day, with views of the Merced River in the valley, Half Dome & Vernal & Nevada Falls.

“Great Views!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 February 2012

We did not hike to this point- we took a bus. I hate bus rides but we were with some older family members. The view is absolutely drop dead gorgeous. It must be one of the top 10 views in the world and you shouldn't miss it. It truly is worth a trip up here. But be careful, people go over the guardrails and fall to their deaths. Don't mess around!
