The falls were just amazing! We were told due to the amount of rain over the past season the falls were especially beautiful and we were not left disappointed!

Last visit there was barely a falls due to the drought. This year the falls are back to their full glory and if you are at the bridge at the bottom you are sure to get the shower of a lifetime.

I had no idea these existed before we passed them and pulled over on a whim. They ended up being my favorite attraction. The winds at the bottom are super strong but I've never felt happier than when I'm standing there. It's well worth it...More

There is still quite a bit of snow melting above the falls so they are running strong. If nothing else, hike to the lower falls.

I went to lower falls. And it was easy and nice hike. Very flat. On a hot day. The cool water is a welcome relief.

This premier hike in Yosemite Valley is accurately labeled as strenuous and takes you to the top of Upper Yosemite Falls, the highest falls in North America. You can do a much shorter, easier hike to Lower Yosemite Falls but the view cannot compare. It...More

This is a great, easy, 1 mile walk from the start of the trail head allowing you to get up close and personal with the lower Yosemite Falls. You walk through a gorgeous forest, and then you begin to feel the waterfall mist in the...More

My dad and I are visiting Yosemite next May. He has a bad hip so he can't walk too much. Are you able to see the lower and upper Yosemite falls without doing the hike?

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
