I’m not even slightly exaggerating when I say to do whatever it takes to get to the top of GP. There are very few busses that go up there and they have to be booked decades in advance - but if you aren’t one of...More

Glacier Point is not on the main Yosemite Valley shuttle route and one needs to take a different route from bridalveil falls junction. Views are truly spectacular from this point and it is well worth the drive. The temperature can fall a lot after sunset...More

Just amazing a must see. The drive up is brilliant a bit twisty but well worth it for the spectacular views

The views from the glacier point are excellent. We had been advised to reach there around sunset and it was lovely. The road is a little winding in the last 10-12 miles with an accent. The point is situated at approx 7500 feet.

Just wow, stopped here while at Yosemite and it’s a must see. Come early as it fills up fast. You get amazing views of the waterfalls and half dome.

There are no sites in Yosemite that are not spectacular. But as Road Scholar says, to really see the park, you must hike, if you can!

I drove from San Jose it the drive was a bit more than 3 hours to the northwestern edge of Yosemite. The drive from SFO should be similar. I'd add another 90 minutes to that estimate to get to Glacier Point since its at the... More
