This small section of the Yosemite Valley Loop Trail brings you out into the valley just east of El Capitan Meadow where you get amazing views of El Capitan directly above you and Half Dome and the rest of Yosemite Valley to your east. This is just a 1.2 mile out and back/loop combo section of the trail, but it's likely one of the best short and accessible hikes in the Valley that gives you 360 degree views of what Yosemite has to offer.

The best part about this trail is that it's lightly trafficked - you likely won't see anyone else on this trail other than the day hikers completing the valley loop. For the seclusion of the valley and views of El Capitan and Half Dome, this is likely one of the best trails at Yosemite.

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 (Founder & Admin). As the Founder, main contributor, and doer-of-all-things for MyHikes, I share my trips with over-detailed write-ups for fun on a volunteer basis and I believe that public trail information should be available to everyone.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes, including hiking , mapping , writing , and publishing new trails with high-quality content... along with building new features, moderating, site maintainance, and app development for iOS and Android . I simply ask that if you find MyHikes' trail guides helpful to please consider becoming a Supporter to help keep the site, iOS, and Android apps available to everyone.

Supporters unlock website and in-app perks with a one-time payment of $25 (you renew) 😎👍. Or you can simply make a Donation of your choice without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes is the next-best thing - both quick and free 🎉

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike!️
