What a marvelous spectacle! We highly recommend dedicating a good hour or two hiking around the Glacier point while exploring Yosemite National park in Northern California with your kids.
Note: Glacier Point Rd is closed during the winter month,simply because it’s covered with a a few feet of snow. The way leading to the Sentinel dome and the Glacier off of Wawona road is not accessible all year around
We made so many memories while site seeing Sierra mountains and Glacier point probably makes it to the top 5 absolute-must-visit locations at this national park. The hike to the overlook is perfect to combine with the Sentinel Dome hike. The parking by both is spacious especially if you come early in the morning unlike down below in the valley.
Yosemite park overview
Glacier point overlook is the best place to begin your acquaintance with the Yosemite park since you’ll have a panoramic view with all the waterfalls at your sight. The views of the waterfalls open up as if they were landmarks on the map in the palms of your hands. What an amazing sight!
If Sequoia National park didn’t made it onto your itinerary, have no worries. Besides endless trails and waterfalls make sure to check out the majestic Redwood trees at the Mariposa grove. If Sequoia National park didn’t made it onto your itinerary, have no worries.
Don’t forget to swing by the Tunnel view on the way into the Yosemite valley.
