Yup you gotta climb. You don't have to rush . Its amazing. I am afraid of heights but this is just something else and you never feel on the edge of a precipice as the trail is totally safe. Go for it.

You will absolutely want to start early and from the valley. We started the climb 8.30 am and reached the top in almost exactly three hours. All the way up we were in shade and it was nice and cool. On the way back through...More

It’s absolutely strenuous! I was seriously injured going downhill for six and a half hours with injuries to my big toes! Swelling, possible stress fractures and an infection ensued! It was like someone dropping a hammer on your toes with every step you took because...More

This hike is not 4 miles. Once more accurate mapping was available, they found it to be about 4.5 miles one way. It’s full of switchbacks after switchbacks and it starts going up immediately—wastes no time. Before you decide not to ascend this hike, know...More

This was an absolute great hike. We drove up to glacier point and my mother and sister drove the car back down as the rest of the family hiked down. We loved every second of the hike. Beautiful views and the trail was very quiet....More

We did not have kids but we did see some groups with children. They seemed to be doing fine. I’d say normal preparation: good shoes, plenty of water, check the weather, take it easy, and enjoy!
