Glacier Point

Glacier Point Professional Review and Guide

"The view from Glacier Point is surely one of the most spectacular in the world. Half Dome occupies center stage, brooding over slickrock Tenaya Canyon and Mirror Lake at the east end of Yosemite Valley.

To the right the Merced River drops into the valley over the Giant Staircase as Nevada and Vernal Falls. Beyond lie rounded Mount Starr King and the darker colored Clark Range. Interpretive panels at the rim help you identify the distant peaks."

Definitely one of the best views you will ever have-- Glacier Point is breathtaking. The only setback is the ton of other people you have to "share" with. But it's worth it.

This is one of the most amazing sites I have ever seen! And the Panorama Trail leading from Glacier Point to Yosemite Valley passes by 3 incredible waterfalls. It is slightly strenuous, but mostly downhill and worth ever step!
