Open seasonally, Glacier Point is at the far end of the road. You can get amazing views of the valley, hall dome and more. There is a visitor center here as well. Beware of the cliff edge with children.

    Sentinel Dome

    9 reviews

    The trail starts off the Glacier Point Road and is about 2 miles. We prefer the trail to Taft Point (1 mile) which also starts there. Sentinel Dome gives you great views but there is a shortcut that makes the trip far easier. (ask Danna, our manager) Taft Point also has great views and amazing fissures and scenery. There is ...

    One of the vista point on Glacier Point Road. It is beautiful but try not to linger here too long as there are better views further down the road.

    14 reviews

    Half Dome is located in Yosemite National Park. Elevation reaches just above 4500 ft high. Day hikes are possible but now require permits as their has been numerous deaths due to its dangers. It can be seen from numerous locations from the valley floor. This shot was taken at Half Dome Vista Point about 20 minutes before entering Yosemite Valley.

    Glacier Point Trail Hike

    1.76 mi from Glacier Point
    14 reviews

    This isn't so much of a hike as it is a short walk from a parking lot out to a viewpoint high above Yosemite Valley. But oh, what a viewpoint it is. John Muir and Teddy Roosevelt once camped out here overnight, and it's still an amazing place to go stargazing. During the day or night, summer or winter, the ...

    Mirror Lake is a short hike from available parking or bus stops in the valley floor area. It is nice year round, although a bit more challenging in winter.

    When you're down in Yosemite Valley, you can't always appreciate the grand scale of what you're looking at. But you can if you drive up Glacier Point Road, then hike out to this viewpoint high on the granite cliffs above the valley. In winter, you can do a DIY snowshoe trek or join a ranger-guided snowshoe walk out to the ...

    Wawona Golf Course

    4.38 mi from Glacier Point
    2 reviews

    There aren't many national parks where you can also play golf (Death Valley's Furnace Creek course comes to mind first), so why not stop off at Wawona and get out on the greens? The course is relatively flat, laid out along the river and meandering past meadows where birds trill.

    The Ahwahnee Gift Shop

    1.16 mi from Glacier Point
    2 reviews

    A night at the Ahwahnee can run you around $500 a night, which for my budget would have to be a very special occasion. In comparison, a top Spanish Parador such as the Hostal de los Reyes Catolicos in Santiago de Compostela (where Gayle and I honeymooned) costs less than that (and includes breakfast). However, if you happen to be ...
