The plan was to drive to Mariposa Grove, but the road is closed because of snow.
From Tunnel View, we walk to Inspiration Point.
A nice short hike with amazing views and a nice path. The walk starts at the Tunnel View parking on the right side. The first piece of the path predicts the rest of the walk. It is fairly steep but is not annoying to walk. Just before Inspiration Point the trail becomes more flat. In about an hour we were up and enjoyed the view. All that walking at least got us warm again. On the way we had hail and snow, but as we arrived at the top it is at least dry again. The clouds clear away from the valley and the snowy peaks of the mountains. Enchanting views with sun and snow make for a real Inspiration Point!
The way back is faster and soon we arrive at our RV and we drive back to the valley.

Length: 4 km to and back
Height difference: 300 m

Note: Despite the many visitors to this path there is the possibility that you encounter bears on this hike. Make sure you are aware of the rules on bears before you begin the walk.
