Badger Pass to Glacier Point Trail

Badger Pass to Glacier Point Trail Professional Review and Guide

"See the photogenic Yosemite Valley in a special way that only a few souls get to experience—from atop Glacier Point when it’s hooded with snow. The thousands of tourists who drive to this popular vantage point in summer won’t feel your cherished solitude and sense of major achievement, nor will they embrace the views that you’ll encounter. Trek alongside the tracks of the groomed cross-country ski trail on Glacier Point Road during clear weather in winter or early spring and the peaceful and scenic memories will be forever etched in your spirit. The anticipation of reaching the ambitious goal of Glacier Point will likely keep you energized and enthusiastic much of the way. After all, how often does anybody get to gaze 3,200 feet down into a valley bordered by stark granite and with a graceful river such as the Merced running through it? Along the way, you’ll see plenty of picturesque, snow-capped sites, such as the nearby Clark Range, which rises above 11,000 feet in elevation."
