Well worth the drive from the main Yosemite loop road

This is one of the most awe inspiring views in the World, let alone Yosemite! If you drive in from the West/Fresno direction this will probably be the first proper view you get... read more

This is one of the most awe inspiring views in the World, let alone Yosemite! If you drive in from the West/Fresno direction this will probably be the first proper view you get within Yosemite. There are small parking lots on both sides of the road but they are busy all day so please try to be patient when waiting... More

Visited end of November 2016. Absolutely breathtaking scenic views, highly recommend for nature lovers. The drive to get to this point was fun, lots of twisted and turning roads. We couldn't go all the way up to glacier point since roads were a bit slippery. Worth seeing with your eyes since pictures don't do justice!

Tunnel View is captivating. You need to see this with your own eyes. Tunnel View is a short drive from Yosemite Valley and after taking it all in here, make the drive up to Glacier Point!

We picked up some binoculars for the kids, that really helped. This spot gives you a great overall perspective on what's to come throughout the park

On a recent trip commencing in San Francisco, I chose to take a day trip out to Yosemite National Park with Gray Line tours. Albeit an excruciatingly long day on the bus, there were so many epic moments that negate the exhaustion. All you need do is take a look at the attached photos and remember that they are just...

This is worth the drive as you have a picture perfect view of Yosemite. It is easily accessible from the road and you can see Half Dome, El Capitan and Bridal Veil Falls from this access point.

As you come out of this road tunnel the view hits you and any review I give of this Park and various viewpoints is so full of superlatives that I find myself lost for words at times. Spectacular, amazing, wonderful, awesome, magnificent are just a few that immediately come to mind. If you are thinking of visiting, don't hesitate, GO!

What to say more than the title - just great view of great National Park. Very different to other parks I saw during this visit but definitely one of the most beautiful.

Just as you exit the tunnel, the view is magnificent. Waterfalls, rock walls of El Capitan. Fabulous.
