We were unexpectedly detoured to start this hike from McGurk Meadow trail. The hike to Dewey point was fairly easy with slight elevation rises. The scenery was disappointingly overwhelmed with fallen/cut down trees. It seemed like it was "under construction". Upon arriving to Dewey point the view was SPECTACULAR!!! The view made the hike worth while. Since we were unamused with the beginning of the hike, we chose to follow the remaining Loop Trail from AllTrails guide back to our car. This was the worse decision! We had to follow hidden markers on the trees since the trail itself was not visually apparent from the ground. We ended up in a swampy marsh land which we HAD to cross to follow the trail. We almost got lost many times despite having the downloaded trail. I would not recommend taking the Loop Trail at this time of year.

Really enjoyed this hike. TH easy to find at McGurk parking Lot. Originally planned to walk to Meadow and back but was such a nice day went all the way to Dewey Point. Fairly flat however the last 1.5 miles to the Point left me a little winded. Didnt see anyone on the way out but I also got an early start. There were however a ton of bugs at around 3 miles.

Spectacular hike. We went July 17, and the views were stunning. It was definitely hot, make sure you bring lots of water. The view at Stanford is worth the small trek down in elevation (which you end up taking that gain on after a fairly grueling hike to the top). We were all absolutely blown away by the views. The Mariposa fire was burning strong when we went, and made the skies somewhat hazy and the air much tougher to breathe in (I'm a Colorado native, so the elevation wasn't an issue).

The view at Dewey Point is stunning. You get to see El Capitan, Ribbon falls, and Yosemite Valley. There's great camping spots for backpacking! Keep your eye out for snow plants too.

This trail is beautiful but super inaccessible in the winter. I would not recommend trying to hike past inspiration point past October. It ended up feeling like I was following bear tracks with snow up to my knees. Lol. Nonetheless, it offers amazing views of the valley.
