We had one day walking around. Not a lot of water in the streams but the waterfall into Lower Falls was flowing. Took a walk up to the pool at the bottom of the waterfall. It’s a tough walk over the rocks but well worth...More

If you are going to Yosemite the Valley is awfully crowded and the scenery is good but not spectacular. To really enjoy Yosemite go to the eastern part of the park where there is less traffic and people and the scenery is Spectacular. The best...More

And still not see everything that there is to do. Short and long hikes, checkout the app all-trails app for details on maps/times/difficulty. We stayed on housekeeping camp which was perfect EXCEPT I wish they had a give/take table. There were a few things we...More

Can anyone give this less than a 5? I guess if they're reviewing service, or the traffic signs (which I admit are bad), or people in general, they may give less than a 5. Regardless, for nature-lovers and others, this is a MUST SEE at...More

You can see everything (almost) from the valley - looking up of course. Cafe opens at 11am, but large gift shop/snack shop open earlier. Lots of parking at visitors centers. Phone signals go out for most of the drive in Yosemite. We printed out our...More

Awesome place a must see when in this area. We stayed in Mariposa about one hour away and spent 3 days exploring the park. It did not disappoint.

If you must drive through the Valley on the Weekend expect it to take 2 hours. If you take the bus system bring some anti-bacteria gel, becuase you are packed in like a Train from India.

We visited Yosemite in early September. It was quite a busy park, some nice walks but it was very busy and unfortunately there weren't any waterfalls. It's a nice park but definitely not our favourite national park in America.

From there you have views of ALL the beauty of Yosemite. Of all the spots in the Valley, the cemetery was my favorite. So peaceful, full of birds and critters. Sit quietly and listen to the wind blow through the black oaks. A special place.

There are some stunning views here but all the people and cars spoil it. The trails are quite rightly accessible to all people but if you stay low then all the trails are busy and the car parks full unless you get there early. Much...More

Hi The absolutely best place to ask is the TripAdvisor forum. This Q&A feature has few readers. When you ask on the forum, I'll share a link to the average temperatures, planning a Fall visit, Visiting in Fall, and more.

We were there in May, and even then the main road to Tuolumne Meadows was closed (as was the East entrance to the park). We still found plenty to do on the West side to fill the three days we were there. We had rented a... More
