Did this as part of a much longer hike from the valley. Awesome but it was pretty low light through this section. One of my favorite golden retreivers was named after this hike. I miss Tenaya!

Wonderful gentle stroll with plenty of side paths to take for bouldering. Easy path to take for people who aren't certain they want to venture out too much. Nice start to the day for people who have bigger plans.

Love this hike! Beautiful view! Bit of a rush to stand near the edge!

Great little walk for an amazing view of Half Dome and the valley floor.

Great hike, Sequoias are amazing!

An amazing hike that’s fairly simple with lots of water. I hiked it about 5 years ago as there was a heat wave. Be prepared for all kinds of weather. It was worth it though!

Amazing views!

Awesome trees...
And trail. Hiked this one long before Alltrails existed.

Very easy paved trail, done several years ago! Very very crowded. Not the way I like to enjoy nature but is great for all skill levels and the falls are pretty. Just felt very much like a "tourist attraction".

An easy Yosemite hike

Did this short trek a week ago and was one of the most amazing places I’ve ever seen or experienced. The largest Giant Sequoia (giant Grizzly) is thought to be 1,900 to 2,000 years old. A must do when in Yosemite!

Great hike among trees over 2000 years old. The fire marks are for the Sequoias’ benefit as they thrive in normal fire cycles of about 20 years and their bark offers fire resistance. Last controlled burn was in 2000.

Walked here in 6/29/18. Disappointed to find that the lake had evaporated to grasses and streams. This is a seasonal lake, so you have to get there early spring to see it’s full reflective beauty.

Went in late Aug, but there wasn’t much water left in the lake. Can’t see the reflection of mountain in a sunny day. Pity. The trail was in great condition with quite a few ppl. Still a enjoyable easy hike.

The amazing thing about this area is that so many of the trails connect! I will most definitely be back and do more hiking, but this time around, Yosemite was just a half-day stop. And if you’re doing the same thing, get here early and head to this spot! I’m currently on a huge road trip and this may have been the most amazing sight my eyes have ever seen. Simply spectacular. Additionally, another cool thing is that there is great phone connection so I was able to facetime and share the view with some of my friends and family back home. All that to say, I’d HIGHLY recommend this lookout point of the valley, whether you’re just stopping by the park for a few hours, or hiking some of the trails around it!

This may be a short hike, but bring water!

Great hike! Not too bad, not much of an incline. Took us 45 mins - 50 mins to get to the edge. Amazing view of the valley and El Capitan! Don’t forget to take a picture to that other edge of the point. Also, be aware and be prepared for mosquitoes along the hike.. Have off lotion/spray handy with you. Wear windbreakers or layered clothing.

We walked the Grizzly Giant Loop, and added a 2 mile roundtrip pit stop to see the Faithful Couple. The new boardwalk with informational panels at the beginning of the trail are wonderful. Also appreciate the shuttle service from the large parking lot to the trailheads. Very easy, well shaded, very little height gain.

We walked the mile long trail from the Taft Trail/Glacier Point Junction. Well worth it!

Simple walk to amazing views! Worth going at sunset as it lights up Half Dome!
Kids loved being able to be free, climb rocks and having flashlights.

Easy. Fun. But lots of people.

simple. easy. and picture perfect.

The revamped Mariposa Grove of Giant Sequoias is as gorgeous as ever! The new pathways are great, and really help keep people away from the trees. The trail to Wawona Point is steep in spots, but beautiful. Wawona Point is still under a bit of construction, but don’t let that stop you! The views from the point are breathtaking. Go as soon as the Grove opens at 8 am, and have a great day!

it was awesome great views not to hot. saw a bob cat my 6 year old and 4 year old loved it.
