Panorama Trail, Yosemite National Park

4.8
#4 of 20 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.
