Panorama Trail, Yosemite National Park

4.8
#3 of 15 in Trails in Yosemite National Park
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. Put Panorama Trail into our Yosemite National Park journey maker tool to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Yosemite National Park.

  • We pre-booked the glacier point tour bus from the valley floor up to glacier point, and hiked down the panorama trail to the valley. We took a packed lunch, stopped at regular spots to enjoy the views...  more »
  • We had driven a piece of Yosemite in 2014, at the run unfortunately. We promised to come back and take more time. We then set our sights on Panorama Trail. We took the shuttle from 10:00 to reach Glacier Point. The hike began at 11:30. It took us 8 hours including breaks. But that happiness. As a bonus, an encounter with a brown bear that will remain engraved forever. Not to be missed.
