A short walk to see such a beautiful water fall needs to be on your list if you are in Yosemite. We were there when the park wasn’t too busy so we easily found a parking place too.

One of the most majestic falls I have seen. Loved the area and the big trees not far from the falls but just go in the off season. Too many people to get really good pictures of the falls

There is always plenty of people here, which means a lot of vehicles also. Be patient and take your time. It is worth the short walk to the falls. There are longer hikes for those who want a bit more, but the walk to the...More

Parking area at the site has dug out type restrooms. The walk up to the falls is mostly under trees in the shade and is ramp like so very accessible. Takes around 10 minutes. Water flow was variable sometime it would look like a waterfall...More

Yes, it should be but minimal, with the local fires it might be limited viewing or possibly closed...I would check the Yosemite official site just to be certain.
