What? : The view from Glacier Point is one of the most rewording view you will see in Yosemite NP, this trail will lead you from the valley floor to the Glacier Point located at the top of the cliffs above.
The beauty of this trail is not only because of the rewording view from the top of the mountain but in addition, once you climb above the valley floor tree level you get to see amazing view of Yosemite Falls on the other side of the valley. If that is not enough, the view from this trail to the west is breathtaking, the Yosemite Valley opening with El Capitan on one side and Cathedral Rocks on the other.
This is stenose hike, out and back (assume you are not using shuttle), and unlike it name it is almost 5 miles long one way with 3,700 ft elevation gain.
Important note: Glacier Point Road is close to any traffic during 2022, will be open at late spring of 2023.
