Hike to Glacier Point via Panorama Trail
8.3 miles (13.4 km) one way. 6–8 hours; 4,000 ft (1,200 m) total elevation change
Begin at Yosemite Vally on the High Sierra Loop Trail to intersection with the John Muir Trail above the top of Nevada Fall. A left turn follows the John Muir Trail for 3.3 miles (5.3 km), while a right turn passes over Vernal Fall over 2.9 miles (4.7 km) then crosses the brink of Nevada Fall a 600 ft (175 m). This longer route to Glacier Point brings hikers past Illilouette, Nevada, and Vernal Falls. 1,300 ft (400 m) to Illilouette Fall during the last 2.0 miles (3.2 km), the trail climbs nearly 800 ft (240 m) to gain the Panorama Cliff ridgeline. Consider combining this trail with the Four Mile Trail for a long, strenuous loop!
