in summer there was no water at all! Never mind, the park is still amazing. The valley is a stunner.

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...

When we were there on July 8, there was very little water flowing off the falls; there was more on Lower Yosemite Falls. The hike was super easy and well worth it. I would allow 45 minutes, unless the water is really going. Then I probably could have stayed all day.

We really enjoyed the trail to Lower Yosemite Falls; seemed quieter and less crowded than most of the valley. The trail is easy and well shaded.
