Breathtaking. Never seen anything so naturally beautiful but DOES NOT HAVE A BATHROOM! Haha only complaint I have. Haha

It’s just a walk but it worth it to see

Not much of a hike but the view of the falls is stellar. Parking lot fills up quickly so plan a very early trip. Stop by tunnel view afterwards just up the road

One of those things you “have” to see... but definitely not exciting. A long walk (downhill) on cement - my knees weren’t a fan of that bit after a previous hike. Then a ton of people crowded around a tree for photos.... just don’t make this the only thing you do that day and you’re golden. Maybe go earlier too.. then a lovely walk back uphill on cement...

We walked this trail back in July. It was a pretty quick walk so we decided to go off the regular trail. We went over the rocks and right up to the falls. It was still flowing in July.

Can’t go to Sequoia without taking the short hike down to see the General Sherman. Highly recommend continuing on the the Congress Trail while you’re down there. One of my favorite hikes anywhere.

Lovely short walk with many sequoia tree displays. Information boards are really useful. Was November and still very busy with people but quite a big car park. Toilets at the car park. Wheel chair accessible as is all paved out but big hill to get up and down to go see trees.

Bridalveil Falls trail, Yosemite. Water still falling in November when some of the other Yosemite Falls have dried up. Beautiful, ethereal, don’t miss it. I’ll be coming back in late spring.

Nice hike but only 4 stars as the falls have dried up until snow melt in late spring. I’ll be back then.

Incredible hike! I would do this again although I wouldn't try to be daring due to the recent death that was on the news about the Indian couple Vishnu Viswanath and Meenakshi Moorthy in October 2018. Thinking back, I even walked down inside a fissure that seemed to have solid grounding underneath between the rocks but I would not attempt that again. This place is so remarkable, you can spend hours taking photos.

Short easy paved trail. The waterfall was non-existent this time.

Quick and effective! Great photo op.

This is a nice little hike from the road, I did this one first after driving 4+ hours to Yosemite and it was good way to start great weekend. I't just slightly more than a mile each way, so carry a bottle of water with you. It is really neither an up hill or a down hill trail either, nor is flat. It's small section going slightly up or down till you get close to edge, then the last 300+ feet of the trail is downhill till you get Point. Most of the fissures are to the east (right hand side), so take a little time to view these before making your way out to the point. At the point, you will find 2 over looks, one on the east with some old guard rails, and one to the west without guard rails (where the couple fell off a week or two ago). If you're doing this as group, have someone stay at the guard rail overlook with a camera, while your friends visit the other overlook, you'll get great photos here. Take turns too so everyone get's a photo on the west overlook. Of course, don't fall off and ruin your weekend.

The trail back starts off as uphill, but then is just slight up and downs till you're back at the road. While you won't find water here, you will find a set of porta pottys if you need to go.

Beautiful view of the fall off the top of the mountain. We did hike down to the actual fall. Slippery rocks so it is more dangerous. Use caution.

The hike is easy enough and the views are amazing, just stay away from the edge!

on Taft Point and The Fissures

Easy hike and view was amazing!

1 star just so that you notice; views are breath taking and the hike is easy. It's a 5 star hike.

But, I lost 2 of my friends from the edge of the cliff Oct, 2018 - there are no giard rails at the edge and it gets very windy.

Please be careful up there guys!

nice easy hike

awesome views, easy hike

Short hike, but the elevation will definitely catch up to you on your way back to the railhead. Great for a quick stop and photo-op.

Breathtaking view especially at sunset. Of course a must on every drive down Hwy 1!

Beautiful short walk, sadly no water this time of year.

Awesome and my personal favorite after my friend showed it to me. Better for those trying to get away from the crowds. Descends off the road to the cliff's edge. There are about 5 different bluffs all with views of the canyon. No railing so be careful but it gives you a great sense of scope of the park.

Pretty shady until you get to the cliff's edge and a decently moderate gain on your way back.

Nice walk but unfortunately there was no water. From the videos we’ve seen, that would be amazing. It was still impressive to look at.

You get real close to the falls. Too bad not much water was falling but it was still worth it

amazing to see the biggest tree in the world, super easy hike, can even take shuttle back to trailhead if you don't want to hike back, but very very crowded

Easy walk down to “General Sherman”, but the climb back will tax the heart. High elevation, remember to breathe
