Olmsted Point, located in Yosemite National Park, is a viewing area off of the Tioga Road which offers a view into Tenaya Canyon. This view looks southwest into the valley, giving, in particular, a view of the northern side of Half Dome and a view of Tenaya Lake to the east.[1]

The site is named after landscape architects Frederick Law Olmsted and Frederick Law Olmsted, Jr.[2]
