We hiked down from Glacier point. It is a very steep climb, and although only 4 miles, it took about 4 hours, as you can't walk very fast. It was quite tiring on the calf muscles. There wasn't much water, so carry some with you. It was beautiful and the viewpoints across are quite stunning. Quite a bit of the hike was in the shade. It was not always interesing climbing, and it did get a bit tedious at times.
