One of the best views, there are car parks on BOTH sides of the roads. But do not miss. Best visited in the morning.

We liked this so much, we also drove to Tunnel View to take more pictures. We first saw it from the 4 hour Glacier Point Bus Tour we had learned about from the Yosemite web site. We chose the one starting at 8:30 considering it...More

Not much to say other than this is an easy view to get to on your way out of the park and stunning views.

Thankfully, we had someone with us that could explain what we were looking at...the glacier action, the mountains, half dome...it's all breathtaking! Highly recommend.

Coming down from Mariposa grove or Glacier point by car leaving the tunnel you are faced with a fantastic view over the Yosemite valley. Stop in the parking lot and look.. and try to find the words to describe ! That’s it !

After seeing pictures of this area, it was wonderful to finally experience it in person. If you are in Yosemite, do not miss this fabulous view.

This is one of those iconic views of Yosemite so you have to do it. Take time to absorb it all before taking pictures. We have been enjoying it for over 60 years.

Drive 2 minutes through a tunnel, then get slapped in the face with one of the world's greatest views. Awesome! This parking lot seems like it could get very busy at peak times.

Download the map and brochure, I recall 4-5 easy trails. I don’t have it handy, but I went on 4 trails of easy flat walking to moderate uphill elevations either with a lot of steps or decent gravel paths. There are also some... More
