You can lie down and look over the edge. Hiked here from Glacier Point - bring 2 liters of water. Lots of beautiful views.

A nice short hike, 2 miles round trip, or 5 miles if you also do the sentinel dome and pohono loop. Definitely worth a look for some cliff edge views of the valley and the interesting fissures. Also I am not good with heights but...More

Breathtaking view from the point - the valley looks to be miles down. The fissures are scary in that you just walk right upon them. The hike back up takes a bit but well worth the effort

I recommend this hike for families. I did it with my wife and 5 kids (ages 8-16). It is long but not too challenging. The views and the fissure at the end of the trail are worth it. Bring bug spray.

You must do this easy 1 mile hike along with sentinel dome. The view is spectacular. Our family of five had no problems with either hike.

From the parking lot this was an easy .8 mile walk. There was a sign warning us of deep snow and saying the NPS doesn't recommend you go further, but there was minimal snow (though a lot of mud). The walk is flat until the...More

From what I remember, yes there is one. Be warned thought that is a SMALL one. Lots of people park on the side of the road. If you get there early enough, you will have no problem.
