  • Entertainment for nearly a day, especially if you don't hurry. The trail runs from the bottom of the Valley to Glacier Point lookout platform, which offers wonderful views of the Valley. Significant elevation changes. Bring enough water.

  • For me it was exhausting, a tour too long, demanding physically and more in a such a warm day as he made us. The vegetation is scarce and almost all the time you go to the Sun. Waterfalls are nice, but jagged rocks downspouts are endless. It wasn't bad, but it would have been preferable to keep enjoying the Valley, which is much more impressive, and shorter routes.
