Go to a high point, take in the sights, come back, post the selfies on Facebook and then forget all about it – at least that’s how your typical high view-point trip goes. But you won’t do that to Glacier Point. This place is going to reach into your internet-saturated sould and pull you right back into Mother Nature’s arms. It could be the shimmering waterfalls or the ridiculously pink and pretty sunsets or everything! Whether you get there by tour bus (Summer), ski over the Badger Pass Ski Area (Winter) or the Four Mile Trail (June – November) – once you’re at the top you’ll realise that it was worth just about anything to get there. The magnificent vista will treat you to the sight of nearly the entire Yosemite Valley, the Half Dome, the Vernal Fall, the Nevada Fall and Clouds’ Rest. For the best experience, come during sunrise or sunset. The trip upto the point will take you at least 2 hours and may take upto four, so be sure to stock up on food and drink. You’ll usually find plenty of other tourists there.

  • It gets chilly up there; at the very least carry a light jacket.

  • Glacier Point is one of the main attraction in Yosemite National Park. Amazing place for nature lovers. Very beautiful valley. Best place for a day out with family and friends. You can enjoy the gorgeous mountain peaks and waterfalls. You will find large number of visitors, especially on weekends. Yosemite National Park is one of the American national park in the western Sierra Nevada of Central California. This is maintained by the National Park Service.

  • 4 Mile Hike up from the valley!! Hiked from the valley floor. Ended up being a about 9 miles trail is a bit longer than 4 miles. Fantastic views with half dome as the main attraction. Lots of steps/switchbacks hard work gets a rewarding view!

  • Highly highly recommend! It is one of the best locations to enjoy the half dome like it is just can be touched. It is great for the sunsets. There plenty of parking spaces, but due to it is very popularity, it is still to find the parking space for most of the time during the hot seasons. It is a quite long drive from the valley. Prepare some clothing when you go there. By the time of sunset, it may be cold.

  • Beautiful! We got there for the sunset and stars around 6 p.m. Half Dome did not disappoint. Even my dog enjoyed it. There was a crowd but plenty of room and great views for all. P.s. don t forget a flashlight NO walks are lit. Wheelchair accessible. Temp was warm during the day and a little cool at night but a jacket worked well. 9.28.2018
