Stargaze at Olmsted Point
Yosemite › Olmsted Point Overlook
Added by Eric Bennett
- Amazing StarGazing
- Awesome View of Sunrise
- Right next to Road/Parking Area
Just off the side of the highway, look for the pullout for Olmsted Point on your Map. There is a parking area with about 25 parking spots and the lookout point with the tree is right next to there. Come in the summertime and during a new moon to get the best views of the Milky Way. Never crowded, more low key spot spot for viewing and photography than Glacier Point.
