Lookout/Views

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 independently-owned platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave / Admin. We share trails, hikes, and backpacking trips on the interwebs for the fun of it and put a ton of time into mapping and writing about new trails to publish each month.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes. 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 or poking around the site to view ads is the next-best thing to a donation - both quick and free 😄

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike! ✌
