Tunnel View Viewpoint, Yosemite National Park
One of the Best Views in Yosemite.
Beautiful Views in Yosemite Valley
This vista showcases one of the most spectacular views of Yosemite Valley, second only in our opinion, to Sentinel Dome. A great bonus is that it’s right off Wawona Road (Hwy 41) as you enter from the South Entrance of the park. It provides striking views of El Capitan, Sentinel Rock, and Half Dome. The parking lot for the viewpoint is small and can get very crowded during the middle of the day, but it regularly turns over. We’ve always had good luck in the morning getting a spot. If it’s really congested, you can hit it up on your way out of the park later in the day.
If you're looking for a hike, head to Yosemite Falls, our favorite hike in the Yosemite Valley.
