Test your fitness at Panorama Trail, a picturesque path stretching 13.4 km (8.5 mi) in one direction. Strap on proper hiking shoes for the long hike. For an extra challenge, take the trail going up the slope, or for a more relaxing trip take the bus up to Glacier Point before hiking down. Alternatively, follow the old trail to Panorama Point and enjoy a fantastic view of the valley. For travelers who use our international travel planner, Yosemite National Park holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Panorama Trail and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

At the beginning of the path is only little frequented, from the Middle waterfall there are however a lot of people. The descent from the Middle waterfall leads over infinitely many steps, so that I was reminded on the stairways to heaven (or bright?). But the trouble of descent almost 1000 comprehensive altitude and 14 km long route pays off anyway because of the lasting wonderful impressions. For me, it was the most beautiful walk in our United States Southwest tour.
