Yosemite Fall's in the winter is a beautiful walk in the valley in the early morning it is mostly frozen but as the day progresses it thaws and flows stronger. Still a great stop on a walk or bike ride when possible.

The most beautiful park ever. You must see it. Beautiful nature, some animals like chipmunks. Many trails with difficult hardness.

We were told that the time to see them at their best is June, when the snow is melting, but unfortunately our visit was in October and they were dry. However, apart from that, it was a very scenic walk to the falls viewing point.

We were lucky as we could see the waterfall, it was not dried out. The whole area is worth a walk. The whole national park is just amazing.

Still a beautiful trail, but not a drop of water trickling in Lower Yosemite Falls. Amazing scenery, worth a walk anyway.

I normally love Yosemite falls but we have not received any rain for over a month and the falls are completely dry. It is normally a beautiful spot but wait until we get some rain before you visit this sight.

You would need to stay for more than a day to really appreciate the entire area and to take it all in. So many sites to see and hiking trails and magnificent views. I will definitely come here again.

I loved not having much water as I got to climb the rocks in the riverbed. We climbed right up to the base of the falls. Was awesome. Slippery so have good treads.

We visited Yosemite and drove through the park in June. There were so many amazing sites to take in. Wish we could have spent more time. We used the 4th graders in the park free pass to attend many parks and this one was one...More

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
