What people say

"Glacier Point is an iconic viewpoint above Yosemite Valley. It sits at an elevation of 7,214 feet, 3,200 feet above Half Dome Village. You can hike to this viewpoint from the valley floor and climb the 6,400 feet of elevation change or you can drive here via Glacier Point Road (which I prefer to do). The path to the viewpoint is paved and much of it is wheelchair accessible. I recommend coming here for either sunrise or sunset, though sunset will be much more crowded so if you're able to wake up early enough try to experience it during sunrise!"
"4.8 Miles - The Four-Mile Trail leads to Glacier Point, where hikers are rewarded with breathtaking panoramic views of iconic Yosemite landmarks, including Half Dome, the High Sierra peaks, and the Clark Range."
