  • It is a place where you can feel the beauty of the Giant rock. It's actually a bit slippery, so it seems to be very careful.

  • It is a viewpoint from which you can see part of Yosemite National Park. Spectacular views, and if you climb the mountain from behind you have a view of 360 º. It is highly recommended to stop here.

  • Perfect place to stop & stretch the legs in the middle of your road trip to or from Yosemite. I was passing thru heading to Vegas but always make sure to pull over here. The view is spectacular & please are a must. The air feels cleaner & the rock landscape is absolutely beautiful. Stop here if you can. You won't be sorry you did.
  • One of the best vistas in Yosemite. A must-see if you're heading to or from Tuolumne Meadows or Tioga Pass.
