NileGuide Expert tip:
Believe it or not, the Four Mile Trail is 4.6 miles long.
The Four Mile Trail is a very strenuous hike with an altitude gain of 3,200 feet. Of course you can drive to Glacier Point, but the trail is lovely, and you will feel virtuous because you spent two - five hours hiking. Take water with you and wear a hat as well as comfortable hiking shoes or boots. For your safety, it is recommended that you complete this hike before dark. The trail is closed in winter. Many people pay (about $20) for a bus ride from Yosemite Lodge to Glacier Point and then hike back down the Four Mile to the Valley floor again. If you park up top and hike down, be aware that there are NO afternoon buses back up.
