Great trail! It is challenging and long, but so worth it.
Going up Four Mike Trail is taxing but doesn’t take that long. Glacier Point is very crowded and will make you appreciate the quiet trails. At the lowest point on Panorama Trail, there is a spot where you can take your boots off and soak your feet in cold rushing water- I couldn’t recommend this highly enough. The second ascent on Pamorama Trail is considerably difficult especially since you will have just hiked nearly 5 miles up Glacier Point. Take it slow and enjoy the ever changing landscape.
Tips: bring lots of water, start early (it took us about 9 hours start to finish), pack food, and don’t bring too much weight.
