Explore the grandeur of Yosemite Valley, the heart of the national park. “The Incomparable Valley” is seven miles long by one mile wide, and is hub for many of Yosemite’s greatest hits, rock stars and waterfall wonders. As portal to Yosemite Valley’s magical realm, Tunnel View offers the iconic vista of towering Bridalveil Fall and the granite faces of El Capitan and Half Dome.

“The far-famed valley came suddenly into view throughout almost its whole extent: the noble walls, sculptured into endless variety of domes and gables, spires and battlements and plain mural precipices, all a-tremble with the thunder tones of the falling water.”
– John Muir

“I have seen persons of emotional temperament stand with tearful eyes, spellbound and dumb with awe, as they got their first view of the Valley from Inspiration Point, overwhelmed in the sudden presence of the unspeakable, stupendous grandeur.”
– Galen Clark
