About Tunnel View, Yosemite National Park

Sometimes Mother Nature lines up the perfect photograph and then leaves it there for us to find enlightenment in – or win photoplasty contests. The most beautiful attractions are the El Capitan on the left, the Half Dome on axis and the Bridalveil Fall on the left – this is one of the most photographed views in the world. There’s almost certainly going to be a crowd. There isn’t much else to do, and the place is easily reached by car. Bring food and water for however long it is you think you’re going to remain drunk on this beauty.

Tunnel View, Yosemite National Park Reviews

  • This is one of the best scenic points in Yosemite National Park that you don't want to miss. It is on state route 41 next to the tunnel. Walk along the road shoulder on valley side to find your best photo-shooting spots. Be careful of passing vehicles. The views are superb!

  • Second best drivable spot for pictures in the park. Personally I like Glacier Point better, but that's not open during the winter. This spot is super easy to get to even in the snow, plenty of parking, and stunning views year-round, rain, shine, or snow. Please be careful driving in, lots of pedestrians on and around the road.

  • 🏆TOP 10 VIEWS IN AMERICA This is the place God stops by to enjoy his first cup of Fog Cutter coffee in the morning. Few places on this planet offer the iconic view that this place does. 2017 offered unprecedented views of waterfalls at record volumes due to one of the wettest winters in history. While 2018 is starting out much dryer, Tunnel View is still a bucket list must.

  • Yosemite is a beautiful park. Its a bit crowdy in summertime but its still worth going. Yosemite tunnel view gives you one of the most amazing views of the park by just getting off the car. I really recommend stopping and having a look!

  • Beautiful spot to take pictures with the family. There is a good parking lot but during busy times there is very little parking but good patience will pay off and the views are great. Also a good spot to have a picnic lunch if you plan it out right!
