The lower falls trail was a very easy walk and easy to get to. They were impressive to us, and when you walked across the bridge, the breeze and waterfall spit felt so good during a heat wave. The rocks in the water in the...More

Fabulous falls. Fifth highest in the world. Easy paved walkway gets you there past some cairns that people have built out of the rocks below.

It's hard to know what stops to get off on in Yosemite. Especially if you're on the shuttle bus that seems to come when it wants. The Upper and Lower Falls are an easy hike to get to and are a beautiful sight! You get...More

We were told it is quite unusual for the Falls to be flowing this rapidly in mid July. Apparently, the snowfall last winter was quite heavy and they were beautiful. We stayed at the bottom of the falls as we didn't have the time to...More

This is review is for the Upper Yosemite Falls hike. Everyone should do lower Yosemite Falls as it is very easy and accessible. However, the upper falls is a real, strenuous hike. I have been going to Yosemite every year for over three decades and...More

We walked the trail around the falls. You could feel the mist all along one side of the loop. We went in the morning before the crowds were heavy and we were able to get a lot of pictures at the base of the falls.

Yosemite is full of things to see and do. The hike here, especially the lower falls, is crowded, but can be worth it. You will feel the spray from the falls and can add to the rock sculptures before you get there. Kids especially will...More
