USA Taft Point
- Please to see the geo position & weather for this photo spot
Taft Point provides a VERY direct view over the Yosemite Valley. Most people never see it as the tour bus continues up the road to the more famous (and overcrowded) Glacier Point.
Pleaseto see the photography tips.
There is parking, though it can get crowded in high season. Usually open from May till November. From the parking lot there are two main trails, to the right is Sentinal Dome, to the left Taft Point. It takes about an hour hike to get there, and if you're going for sunset, be sure to bring a flashlight and follow the trail carefully to get back out.
