Glacier Point
Most agree that the views from Glacier Point, 3200 feet above Half Dome Village in the valley below, are the very best views of the park and to the high country beyond (though only open to vehicles from late May to October or November). The View Terrace looks out to Half Dome, Vernal and Nevada falls, and Liberty cap to the east; Upper Terrace features views to the west, including Yosemite Falls and Yosemite Village. Parking is very limited, so the best option for getting there is either a park shuttle bus from Badger Pass, or the private guided bus tour that departs from Yosemite Valley. For some of the best, relatively uncrowded hikes in the park, consider taking the bus one way to Glacier Point and then hiking (nearly straight down) the Four Mile Trail or 8.5-mile Panprama Trail, both with stunning views that eventually end at the valley floor.
