Great trail on the perimeter of Yosemite. Definitely worth the trip if you are in the area. We did this trail on a Friday evening around 5pm and had the trail to ourselves.

Absolutely stunning. Took the high trail up to the top of the waterfall and spent a few hours wading around in the water. Paradise! One of the items on my "to do" list while visiting from Canada.

Great hike for all levels. nice scenery. we got caught up in a thunderstorm on the way back so we got soaked. regardless it was still an exciting hike. would definitely hike it again.

Hiked in late May and the wildflowers are amazing. Interesting meadow in the saddle. Nice panoramic view at the top, including Hetch Hetchy Lake, O'Shaughnessy Dam, and Wapama Falls.

Relatively easy walk, moderate uphill for the last half.

just did this hike today, beautiful!! so many places to pull off and fish, rest.. the waterfall was worth the hike!

Loved loved it... Gr8 moderate trail for all

Fun trail with a great waterfall at the end. Water is cold but well worth a dip!

It was so peaceful and serene on the walk before we actually got to the falls. So much nature to take in and then right before you get to the falls it gets a little steep but not too hard. The falls were amazing would totally do it again.

This was a great hike with great views. The area was burnt in 2013 but is recovering great. Went on Memorial day and was not crowded at all.

Hiked this one several times. Nice parking area with restrooms. Heading east on Hwy 120 about 10 or 15 miles past Groveland, you will finally see a sign that says San Jose Camp, Cherry Lake Road. The road winds down to the river then go right where it "T"s off. You will see the living facilities of the Hetch Hetchy employees and then the parking area and trail head. The trail follows the Tuolumne River and is mostly flat and east to follow. BONUS INFORMATION: If you turn left at the "T" instead of right, you will head toward the power station. There is a bridge with room to park and another trail head that runs for miles in the opposite direction. Either way, it's a nice place to check out. The only problem is that it's way out there so you need to get an early start to get there in time to get your miles in. Also; wild Bay Leaves everywhere, so bring a baggie and fill it up.
