easy access for all levels of skills. Try make it there just before sunset. Its gorgeous and worth it. However, need some illuminations to get back safely to parking lot.

You have the best view on the half dome from there and in general the upper valley. The view on the waterfall depends on the season, as you can see there was no waterfall in October.

This is a must see if you are in Yosemite and is well worth a long drive. We visited in mid-September and it was busy. Once you get to the point, Car parking is limited and operates a one-way system, but as people are coming...More

This is a “don’t miss” spot for any Yosemite vacation. The view of the entire valley is breathtaking. Get there early. The parking lot fills up, and one can’t go in until another leaves.

Definitely worth a visit ! Scenic views and good hiking trails. I think it's beatiful every season but autumn colours made it special this time. Didn't see any bears but need to be avare, considering carrying food with you if vamping.

We drove out to Glacier point early in the day. There is a large parking lot and a small snack/gift shop. The view of the Yosemite valley is spectacular. There are a few worthwhile hikes along the way.

Breathtaking views. Nice paved path. Large parking lot. Pit toilets that were absolutely disgusting! One had poop all over the seat:(.

Worth the drive for the view. Nice sunrise spot looking towards Half Dome. Only a short walk from the parking area.

Visited tunnel view before Glacier point and would not have believed the former could be surpassed, have seen magnificent scenery all over the world, however if I had to rank this particular view it would be #1. Follow glacier point road for about 45 minutes,...More

A must see when visiting Yosemite! Easy paved walk to the overlooks, jaw-dropping scenery. Even in October, we could see a bit of Vernal and Nevada Falls.

I drove from San Jose it the drive was a bit more than 3 hours to the northwestern edge of Yosemite. The drive from SFO should be similar. I'd add another 90 minutes to that estimate to get to Glacier Point since its at the... More
