Hiking Trails inside Yosemite | Glacier Point Area

Address: Yosemite, CA

Moderate | Sentinel Dome - 2.2 miles.
Note: Absolutely stunning view from the top of a granite dome. 

Moderate | Taft Point & the Fissures - 2.2 miles.
 Note: Wonderful views of Yosemite Valley. Watch children closely. The Fissures feature 3,000- foot drops to the valley floor.

Moderate | Sentinel Dome - Taft Point 5-mile loop.
 Note: Starting toward Sentinel Dome is the easiest—it’s uphill to the top of Sentinel Dome then mostly downhill or level out to Taft Point and back. The hike can be done either direction.

Easy | McGurk Meadow - 2 miles.
 Note: Marvelous wildflower displays in summer, easily accessible (but be aware that it is uphill on the way back)!

Moderate | Dewey Point - 8 miles.
 Note: One of the most outstanding views of Yosemite Valley available.

Moderately Strenuous | Panorama Trail - 8.5 miles one-way, 16 miles round trip.
 Note: Great hike for spring, summer or fall! Descends from Glacier Point down to Illilouette Fall. From there climb uphill to Illilouette Ridge and continue on to the junction with the John Muir Trail and on to the top of Nevada Fall, then down to Yosemite Valley via the John Muir Trail (easier but longer) or the Mist Trail (shorter but steep with high stone steps).

Happy Hiking!
