      Roadtrip Attraction
      No trip to Yosemite is complete without a drive up to Glacier Point. Glacier Point, an overlook with a commanding view of Yosemite Valley, Half Dome, and the High Sierra is located 30 miles (one hour) from Yosemite Valley. The road ends at Glacier Point and it is a short walk to the viewpoint.

      Be sure to check road conditions, the road is closed from sometime in November through early May or late June. From mid-December through March the road is plowed only as far as the Badger Pass ski area and Glacier Point can be reached via skis or snowshoes only.
