  • Mather overlook is located just after the visitors center. There are restrooms here. It’s a beautiful, quiet place to stop and get a overview of the mountains and the trees. Not a lot of parking.  more »
  • This is a very nice place to stop for a first look at Wheeler Peak and to get a broader view of the area. There is a pit toilet as well which can come in very handy, lol.  more »
  • An exceptional view. But I came back here in the night to see one of the most amazing night skies I have ever seen. The place is so dark I had a conversation with a woman for over one hour and have no clue what she looks like.
  • Beatuiful overlook, worth stopping and soaking in the views.
