Quite steep with wonderful views of the valley. And a huge crowd on top.

I had a day off while on a business trip that placed me in Merced and decided to use the day as an excuse to personnally pick up a permit for my uncoming Mt. Star King climb.The rangers at the wilderness center would too busy to provide me one until after noon, so looking for something do to decided on the 4 Mile trail as it was the only trail I had not hiked out of the valley.
I had never considered the idea before because of the road leading to point and the tourist crowd.
Well I am very gald I did this round trip hike. It was extremely enjoyable and saw only about 5 people until, you guested it, I got within about a quarter mile of Glacier point. At the point proper there were perhaps 500 people. No matter I enjoyed the view, hiked back down then went a picked up my permit.
I highly recommend this trail.

A fun multi-pitch climb. Rapped off in the dark as was an autumn ascent.

It is a pretty hike and I was almost alone except for the Vernal Falls area. This was one of the hikes I did while there for a cousin's wedding.

I've gone up Four Mile, down Panorama Trail (on different trips), always in June I think. Four Mile always has crowds, but I was surprised that Panorama doesn't -- at least until you link up with Vernal-Nevada. Ilillouette Falls on the Panorama Trail is a pretty spot.

One of the most beautiful places on Earth. There are many such places....to paraphrase what's-his-name.

Years ago with a buddy. Still living on the East Coast at the time. What an intro to the American West!

I hike the 4 Mile Trail to Glacier Point two or three times each year. Great conditioning hike! I didn't know there was a page for Glacier Point in Summit Post, nice going.

Drove up with my cousins from Switzerland (their first time in CA), then my dad and I hiked down the Four Mile Trail into the valley. I was 12 at the time and remember the towering cliffs above and below us along the trail.

Wonderful hike! Great weather going up, but it turned to threatening in the afternoon. Although there were lots of folks headed up, we were the only ones who came prepared to brave wet weather from the return trip. The rest must have taken the bus! --mark d.
