We hiked both the Falls view Trail and Lower Falls trail at Yosemite Falls. We had already done a more strenuous hike to the Vernal Falls that morning so we're looking for an easy hike to end our day, what a pleasant surprise the Lower...More

I love this waterfall! The last time I visited Yosemite it was in Fall when the water fall was just a trickle from the drought. This time, I visited in March, after a record breaking snowfall in the higher mountains. This time, the fall was...More

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.
