Taft Point, Yosemite National Park

(5/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web)
Enjoy magnificent 360-degree views of Yosemite Valley from Taft Point, a glacier observation point. Take a relatively easy hike to reach the vantage point; the short trek leads through the woods but involves a great deal of elevation change, amounting to 60 m (200 ft). Standing at 2,285 m (7,500 ft), the point offers dramatic vistas of Yosemite Falls and the valley walls. Parking is available 2.5 km (1.6 mi) from the point. Use our Yosemite National Park trip itinerary builder to arrange your visit to Taft Point and other attractions in Yosemite National Park.

  • 沿途風景很好,森林的感覺,徒步很平坦不累,走得快的話一個半小時來回就可以了。 到了最後就是懸崖,有懼高的人可以趴在石頭上往下看,很宏偉的景觀。 注意旁邊隨時有一些小動物很可愛,簡單輕鬆的徒步行程,風景秀麗,很建議選擇這個行程
