Old Lookout Point on Panorama Trail
August 10, 2014 10:21PM
Did a loop up 4-mile to JMT/Mist Trail back to Swinging Bridge on Saturday. Aside from the few miles in the Valley (not that there's anything wrong with the Valley), it was a great hike. At any rate, there's an old lookout point off the Panorama Trail above and east of the bridge over Illouette. Portions of the old pipe railing are still visible protruding from the rock. Anyone know what this point is called?

Sounds like Panorama Point. There's more about it here: http://yosemitenews.info/forum/read.php?3,56251,56251#msg-56251

Thank you! I tried to check out as many overlooks/ineresting places as possible but it looks like I missed a cool one based on the link. Oh well, next time.

That's the dead giveaway, it's Panorama Point. Also described here.

I've been to Panaroma Point twice (and taken a few pictures, including the "6224" benchmark, that confirm it really was Panorama Point) but I don't remember ever noticing any part of the old railings or holes. Can someone tell me where to look for them?

If you saw the benchmark you were close to stepping on the old railing holes.
Try again.... you won't miss them next time.

Thanks, chick-on. Here's your pic from the other thread. If that rusty nub is what's left of the railing, I can see how I might have overlooked it:
