Ledge trail is a long abandoned trail that runs from the backside of Curry Village up to Glacier Point. About half way up you can cross the creek and climb up the rocks to this spectacular view. At one time power or telephone lines ran up this way, and there are a trio of eyehooks embedded in the rocks, thus my name for this spot, "Eyehook Point". From here you can see down into Yosemite Valley with a panorama that goes from Yosemite Falls to Nevada Fall and everything in between. Royal Arches, Washington Column, North Dome, Tenaya Canyon, Half Dome, Mt Watkins etc.

    I haven't heard it called One-Mail trail before, but it isn't surprising. It's such a short and steep route up. The trail is in terrible shape. It was dangerous before when it was maintained, even more so now with it being an off trail scramble. I'm sure the park rangers cringe whenever it's mentioned! :)

    Very fun route. I've always known it as the One-Mile Trail (in contrast to the paved and marked Four-Mile Trail) to Glacier Point. Oddly, we've seen hot water in the creek sometimes, but not so surprising since it had just trickled down 1,000 ft. of sun-baked granite.
