    Lower Yosemite Falls

    4.5
    34 reviews

    If you drive around the valley loop you can actually get on to the lower Yosemite falls trail and get quite close to the falls itself. In the late spring or very late summer when the water flow is limited you can hike quite a bit up to the base of the falls. But be careful though as the rocks ...

    John Muir Vernal Falls Mist Trail Hike

    5
    24 reviews

    This is a beautiful hike that is part of the Mist trail. The first part to the bridge is a steady incline on a paved path. At the bridge, you will get your first breathtaking view of the waterfall. After the bridge, the incline gets pretty steep and you will get a good work out. It is beyond me how ...

    The falls seem to appear from nowhere, a giant waterfall at the top of a mountain with two huge drops.

    Top of Half Dome Hike

    5
    18 reviews

    While this hike is probably on everyone's "bucket List" there are better hikes for those not in top shape. For Half Dome you need a permit, you will climb 5,000 feet in 8 miles (and descend) and it will take you all day and possibly part of the night.

    For an alternative to long day hikes - you can spend a day on the shores at Tanaya Lake. There are picnic tables around the lake at a number of spots, but remember the water is very cold!

    16 reviews

    As you pass through a long tunnel as you enter Yosemite from the south your eyes come across a stunning yet unbelievable site that is the Yosemite Vally. Your first instinct is to jump out and take a picture so that's what a lot of people do. As you look to your right you see a marvelous water fall and ...

    We came to Yosemite to do Vernal Falls since I adore waterfalls and the BF wanted me to do get some training and do parts of the Half Dome trail. Getting here was easy. We hopped onto the hybrid bus from Curry Village (Stop #14) and headed to #16 for the Misty Trail. Vernal Falls tends to be a bit ...

    Glacier Point

    5
    9 reviews

    I am a big hiker and it's sad but true... Glacier Point has the most stunning views in Yosemite (of Yosemite Falls, Nevada Falls, Half Dome, etc.); and with almost no walking. If I were pressed for time and could see nothing else in the Park... this is it!!!!

    Upper Yosemite Falls Trail Hike

    4.5
    8 reviews

    I hiked along the upper Yosemite Falls Trail and man, was it a work out! The steps to climb up along Yosemite Falls is steep and wet, so watch out. The hike itself is great and there are many scenic views of the falls and the park itself with its dramatic cliffs and forests.

    Mirror Lake

    5
    6 reviews

    During the winter there is very little water in the lake. Even during most summers the lake is more a meadow than the beautiful reflecting pool it once was. However, the journey to the lake makes it all worthwhile. Awe inspiring views of Half Dome and varied wildlife make the trek not to be missed.
