Ascent Trip Report

No real hike involved to bag Glacier Point. The road to the visitor's center is closed in the winter and part of spring, but otherwise it's about a 20-min drive up Glacier Point Rd to the visitor's center parking lot. Once there, Glacier Point is an easy 0.3 mile walk north on the park service trails. It's not really a peak per se; more of a lookout, as the parking lot itself is actually higher. However, it's a beautiful lookout and well worth the drive.
