Road to Glacier Point

<HTML>On a scale of 1 to 10 with 1 being the low side, how scary is it to drive the Glacier Point road if you are terrified of heights?</HTML>

<HTML>It's not really very scary unless you can't handle mountain roads at all. You'd probably find many of the other roads in the park to have worse sections.</HTML>

<HTML>I didn't find the road to Glacier Point to be bad at all. The one that got my attention was coming down from Tioga Pass. Glacier Point's not bad until you walk up to the rail and look down.</HTML>

<HTML>Probably the most scary part of Glacier Point Road is the last quarter mile before the Glacier Point parking lot when you see a 70 foot long charter bus coming right at you while it tries to navigate one of the extremely narrow and tight hairpin turns near the end of the road. I think the speed limit is 10mph on that stretch of road.

Other than that, it's a pretty easy mountain road to drive.

Rating 1 - 10: I'll rate it a 3.</HTML>
