Which is the most beautiful rock formation in Yosemite? While El Capitan is better known, Cathedral Rocks and Spires is considered by many to be the most beautiful rock formations in Yosemite National Park. Their unusually symmetrical balance—appearing to be a massive, triple-rock formation—is a testament to nature’s power. Towering 2,000 feet skyward, it’s a view not to be missed.
