We hiked to the top on our way to the top of El Capitan. It is almost 3.5 miles straight up so reasonably difficult both ways. Well worth it though for the views from the top and a few of the switchbacks.

The walk was nice and easy. The falls were okay. I expected more of this place, but maybe it was to crowed to enjoy the beauty of the falls.

When we went the falls wasn't flowing so there was hardly anything to see. But the place is so nice it didn't really matter.

An easy walk back to the falls is a must during a visit to Yosemite Valley. The trail is often crowded, but wide and paved. The view is spectacular; but this is not back country. It is often crowded.

An easy hike to lower Yosemite Falls. Yosemite Valley is a must see place for anyone. Hiking can be easy up to very hard.

The lower falls is a short walk to the viewing area. He should have no problem with that. I think you have to hike to the top of the falls for the "upper," which would be too much. Park your car and take advantage of the... More
