“Enduring for All Time”
Reviewed 20 November 2013

There are so many sights to see in Yosemite that you think the last view can't be topped but Tunnel View is absolutely at the top. Cameras are in everyone's hands or on tripods to immortalize the sight. This is not a view that you are going to see except in Yosemite and it is a grand sight to see.

If you are up to a hike there is a path in the back of the parking lot on the other side of the road that takes you to the original view that the stagecoaches saw when coming to Yosemite. The tunnel was cut to make access easier and safer. Spectacular view of Yosemite!

“Excruciatingly beautiful”
Reviewed 18 November 2013

Has to be the most beautiful view of the whole park no matter what time of the year you're there. Set your camera and take a deep breath. A sight not to be missed.

“Natures grandeur”
Reviewed 17 November 2013

Overwhelmed by the size of the tunnel and the beauty of it. You won't be disappointed with the trip. Take a day tour or a weekend off. It's worth a visit.

“Visual Surprise”
Reviewed 15 November 2013

Exiting the tunnel from the direction of Wawona, the grandeur of Yosemite opens up in breathtaking beauty and awe. Good parking available with unlimited photographic opportunities.
