We went on a short hike on the lower Yosemite Falls trail. While there was snow on the ground and it was rather cold out, the trail was still easily able to traverse even with a stroller since most of the snow was packed down. The views and scenery is fantastic and since it's the start of winter, there was... More

there are two falls, the lower falls and the upper falls. You can watch both as you walk into the place. there is a nicely built walk way. I also crossed the barrier which reads - be careful or you may end up dead or something like that to get closer to the lower falls. I did not have time... More

We went In November so it was a little bit cold. The walk to the lower Yosemite falls is really nice and very short. The whole place is amazing, so much natural beauty. There are heaps of super friendly squirrels and they are SOO CUTEEEEE.

My wife and I were early for our Floor Tour so we decided to do a short hike to the Lower Yosemite Falls. When we got to the falls, the sun was beaming on the water perfectly, creating a rainbow. It was a pretty sight. What a short and sweet hike.

WOW. This area of Yosemite NP is absolutely breathtaking! The nature aspect itself is so unbelievably beautiful, it's hard to accept that it's real! The well-marked trail to the vista of Yosemite Falls is very well-maintained and easy to traverse. There are many stopping points along the trail where you can see the falls, so I'd recommend you keep walking... More

Sadly there was almost no water in September, but it was a lovely short walk through the woods, we met some cute squirrels and blue birds...

It is absolutely worth spending some time here. When you up for hiking you can go up the mountain next to the water fall. In the park around you can see also seers, which are not shy at all and you can get rather close for taking pictures

We were at Yosemite from October 26 to 28, 2016. When we got there, we were told that the falls were completely dried up 2 weeks ago. We walked over there, the fall was small, not much water. It rained heavily all night that night. It was an amazing view of the Yosemite Fall the next morning. Lots of water... More
