I took upper Yosemite falls trail which was for sure the right thing to do. It is marked as "hard" but it worth it and personally I think it's not that "hard". It took 7-8 considering that we started the hike at 2.30pm and finished...More

This falls and trail was right out side of hotel (Yosemite Vally Lodge) so we would do the food to the falls each morning and evening. A great way to start and end each day.

A must see on any visit, we were lucky to visit in April so water flow was very good. Also upper fall had snow and ice near bottom. Sunny day and not packed with visitors.

Fun hike but very steep. You should know it is like walking up the Empire State Building stairs—twice. Also give yourself plenty of time and it will be crowded.

The hike to Yosemite Falls was an easy hike for all ages and abilities. The majority of the trail is flat, but the last short section does have a slight incline. There are signs that said, “not recommended for wheel chairs” before the incline, but...More

We were so into it, we just stood next to the falls for a while, quietly (including all the kids in our group...). It’s magic

The best advice is get into the park early. Lower Yosemite falls is one of the busiest places due to the ease of accessibility and the beauty of the falls themselves. Glacier point is one of the very best places to view... More
