From the vantage point of Dewey Point, you can look down into Yosemite Valley and take in panoramic views that include many well know peaks such as El Capitan, Half Dome, North Dome, and Cloud’s Rest. This awesome vista spans far into the eastern Sierras.
In the winter, snow shoers and cross country skiers can reach Dewey by starting from the Badger Pass ski resort parking lot. To take this 8 mile round trip trail, follow the graded cross country path that follows Glacier Point Road. Watch for signs on the left of the road as they point the turn onto the Dewey Point trail. The first turn indicating it is a more difficult route than the second that you will find across from Summit meadow & the rest facility.
