Inspiration Point is a great place to take in the classic Yosemite view, with El Capitan on the left and Half Dome on the right. The Inspiration Point hike starts at the iconic Tunnel Viewpoint and proceeds up along the Pohono Trail. After about one mile, you’ll reach the viewpoint and be able to look back towards the Yosemite Valley. The trail follows an out and back route. Although it is on the shorter side, the Pohono Trail is steep and considered a hard trail by most hikers. This is a popular hike for Strava members visiting the park.
