A quick stroll to see Yosemite Falls, the tallest waterfall in Northern America and 5th in the world crash down on the rocks below. Open year round, this trail is easy but icy in the winter. This is a 1 mile/1.6 km loop which takes about 30 minutes to complete. Half of the loop is wheelchair accessible and leashed pets are allowed. The trailhead is at the Lower Yosemite Fall Trailhead (shuttle stop #6). This short, easy walk provides spectacular views of Upper and Lower Yosemite Falls and even Middle Cascade. Like all waterfalls in Yosemite, this waterfall is often dry from late July or August through October and is best seen in spring when the winter snow is melting and the upper lakes are full, significantly increasing the flow of the water over the edge.
Amazing Falls. Easy walk but quite crowded.
Great views and a short hike, best for families.
Nice easy walk for anyone to use.
Great family trail. Lots of deer along the trail, and they are not scared of humans at all! Clean bathrooms near trailhead. It was not crowded early November.
Easy paved trail, very crowded, and the falls have dried up for the season.
Fun for a morning jog!
