The Panorama Trail to Glacier Point in Yosemite National Park is one of the most highly-trafficked trails in the park, but for good reason. After driving up Glacier Point Rd (closed in the winter), you arrive at the top of Yosemite in the high sierras with stunning views of Half Dome, Vernal Falls, Yosemite Falls, and the valley below. The trail is much longer than the 0.5 miles out-and-back here, but you start at the end of the parking lot and work your way north to Glacier Point - follow the trail and the traffic.

Once at Glacier Point, you can follow the small trails that lead closer to the edge of the cliff, but do this at your own risk as there is little-to-no warning that you're about to get to the cliff's edge; however, the freedom of the small trails around the point are nice to get away from the crowds and to soak up the views of this amazing lookout point.

Not much else to say other than it's a long drive to Glacier Point, but you can hike up along the Four Mile Trail to Glacier Point for a 9.6 mile trip instead. However, this is the easier way up.

Before you leave...

MyHikes is an indie web platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave Miller / Admin. We share trails, hikes, and backpacking trips on the interwebs for the fun of it and believe that public trail information should be free and accessible to the public.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes, including exploring , mapping , and publishing new trails with high-quality content, adding new site features, and site maintainance and moderating. We simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your next adventure that you consider making a small donation to help keep the site running.

You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes user account required) to unlock perks for as little as $0.83/month with a 1-time non-recurring payment 😎 Or you can simply Donate any amount without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes is the next-best thing to a donation - both quick and free 😄

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike! ✌
