We went here in June, and although the crowds were pretty large, the park was amazing. You can see this site as you drive though and there is also a hiking trail to get you close.

Took my teenage boys up to the top of the falls 19th July. Very hot. You definitely need to take lots of drinking water with you to get up there in the middle of the day in the heat. This was the 2nd time Ive been there in 16 years and the view from the top is still impressive. The... More

Even though the falls were not flowing while we were there, we were still able to appreciate the grandeur of the falls. We were able to climb up the river bed, which I assume would normally be raging, and really get an idea of the immense scale of even just the lower falls! Really was a unique experience that would...

We are fortunate to have such a scenic area preserved for us. Everyone should experience this park in all its grandeur.

I have visited Yosemite Falls many many times over the past 40 some years. For Grandma's camp this year I made an agreement with my 16 year old grandson to hike Yosemite Lower Falls with him on our last day there. There was no water to be seen in any of the water falls. Well, God knew our hearts and... More
