Dine & Discover ~ Full Moon Hike to Taft Point with the Yosemite Conservancy

Spend an entertaining and educational mid-summer Tuesday evening at an iconic viewpoint off Glacier Point Road. Take an easy mile-long hike to Taft Point, which offers breathtaking views of Yosemite Valley, including Half Dome and El Capitan, and of Sierra peaks stretching into the distance. As you admire Yosemite from above, enjoy an al fresco meal and take advantage of the perfect stargazing setting. Your naturalist guide will whet your intellectual appetite with information about the area’s natural and human history, from the point’s presidential name to the giant fissures gouged out of granite.

After getting your fill of food, facts and stargazing, hike back out under the light of a full moon. Don’t forget to bring your camera — and your curiosity!
