Clouds Rest stands at the Eastern extent of Yosemite Valley, overlooking Yosemite and Tenaya canyon. A great day hike from Tenaya Lake (7 mi.) from trailhead off Tioga Road near Tuolumne Meadows. Clouds Rest offers an outstanding view straight down Yosemite Valley from Half Dome to El Capitan. It also offers a great panorama of the northern Sierra range with views of every major peak in the park. Easily one of the best views in the Park - better than from the top of Half Dome (in our humble opinion).
