Since the Glacier Point trail is so short, this page takes the long view and zooms out far enough to include some of the landmarks that make the views here so memorable. If you'd rather, here's a version zoomed in on the trail alone.
The blue balloon marks the location of Glacier Point. You can see the smile-shaped parking lot just to the southwest, and if you care to visit the zoomed-in view, you can also see the cafeteria, the geology hut (if you're particularly sharp-eyed), and various trails that inhabit the area.
