Amazing views of the valley and waterfalls. It is a long drive to get there and then a quick walk for access to incredible vistas. You can look in the binoculars and see people sitting on half dome!

Not a hike. More like a long drive to get there and a short walk to a lookout. Amazing, otherworldly scenery. I went there for the sunrise. Come early to have the best experience, especially if you are a photographer.

Four mile trail valley floor to glacier point, then 3/4 of the way to sentinel dome and back. Great hike, tough! Done with Sarah W.

on Glacier Point Trail

This is a very short trail, but has the most spectacular view of Half Dome! This is one of my favorite spots in the park. I wish I could sit there all day and just admire Half Dome and the valley below. Parking is very difficult to find. Traffic typically get’s backed up during sunset.

Very short paved trail, the parking lot might be bigger than trail ha. Still a great place for pictures and a food break.

We left a little too late to enjoy the full sunrise, but after 4am we still did see the most amazing view of the Valley

Went here in the early summer in the late afternoon. The trail is more of a walk rather than a hike. It was of course crowded. We picked up some snacks and made our way to the spectacular views. I’m giving this 5 stars because the views are breathing taking. Yes, it makes for very good pictures. But the best part was when we found a place to just sit on a rock, enjoy our snacks, and take in the gorgeous views.

One of the coolest ventures I’ve ever done. 22 miles of gorgeous views. Not crowded whatsoever. A little icy at some points with road showing, just be cautious of your surroundings. Definitely recommend this trip!!

Traveled the first 1.5 miles of the loop (Tioga Pass) on Jan 20, 2020, and the snow was soft and slushy at some parts, and pretty patchy—about one third of it was barely several inches deep in snow, or completely bare road. Will need to wait for more snow and colder conditions (it's been in the 40s the last couple days), otherwise expect your snowshoes/skis to be scratching pavement.

A fairly long drive which leads to very small hike. Great bang for your buck. You get a strenuous hike view without the hike. Make sure to check for Glacier Point road closures when planning your trip. The road is typical open Late May through roughly October.

June 2018-Super easy, gorgeous views. Later took the more moderate trail from glacier point to sentinel dome for arguably even more stunning views. Overall one of the best days of my life, it was so beautiful!

Mid October, beautiful hiking weather. We hiked down from Sentinel Dome and back up. (which would be my recommendation. ) The hike down from Sentinal was not bad, but going back up was a little more challenging. Glacier Point does provide some beautiful views which made it worthwhile. It was busy with non-hikers, who rode the bus up to take photographs.

Short walk to good view of the valley. Very crowded and paved the whole way. While the view is great, I think there are better options doing any of the trails around glacier point if you are willing to hike.

The first 11 miles are so are on the JMT and with not much elevation gain. Hence those are totally relaxing. After that it’s off trail when the real fun begins. I could go all the way to the summit block avoiding the Lyell glacier with just trail runners. I did reach the summit block however couldn’t find a non slippery point to scramble up. I think if I had crampons I could have stepped into the glacier and could have reached a higher point which possibly had an easier or safer ascent up. Hence retreated. Will attempt again someday.

Super easy, this really want a hike, more of a really short walk to get to a look out point. It is a must do though. Really amazing view of half dome and great photo opportunities.

Amazing views and worth being there before sunrise!
