The falls themselves were great, but Yosemite village was packed as it was the summer. Managed to park along the road. We wish we had stayed in Yosemite to properly experience the park.

We went to the lower falls, quite easy to walk to and doesn't take too long. Magnificent views with many great photo opportunities. Go early when not as busy though.

Amazing stop and a MUST SEE at the Park. We wish we'd had more time there. Very non-strenuous walking to the site.

Often by August the falls are dry so see the falls earlier in the tear if possible> If you're in the valley it's hard not to see the falls

Very easy walk towards the lower fall, but be sure to come early if you want to avoid the juge crowds. We were there in July and the fall was still gorgeous.

Anywhere else this would be stunning, but it's surrounded by so many other places that are even more beautiful it's easy to get blasé. A very easy walk to the bottom of the fall, a chance to paddle your feet and only 15 mins in total. A must do.

We experienced this by parking in the lot next to shuttle #11 and taking the VERY beautiful walk to the base of it. I would highly recommend doing it this way. You'll walk (paved) across a beautiful meadow with jaw dropping views of half dome and the falls. Ogle at the falls and then continue on with a hike to... More

The whole park is worth the trip. Taking a look at the falls makes a wonderful vacation fulfilling. I am looking forward to returning one day.
