Picturesque hike! Wow.

During snowy conditions, Yaktrax shoe chains are definitely worth it, as it gets pretty icy! You can by them for ~ $25 in the shop in Curry Village.

This was a great trail would definitely recommend it.

I’ve done this hike without snow & ice & its totally different. Still a great hike, but icy/snowy & slippery in spots. Especially past the base of Vernal Falls. See pics :)

Nice trail even in winter. Yosemite in March is awesome.

Doesn’t get any better!

Wonderful long hiking loop. Option to follow paved bike path or hiking trail. Hiking trail in early March 2018 still had lots of snow in some parts but bike path was cleared (some areas need to take the road, but little traffic and most areas have paved bike path.) Hiking trail is uneven in parts with some climbing. Fine for most but not wheel accessible.

LOVE it!! Go early in the morning though.

amazing view. you can see upper and lower falls and also half dome.

Did this in the winter and it was a beautiful.

Oh my goodness. This was my first trail at Yosemite and it was incredible. You can’t beat the view from the top of Nevada Falls. Definitely recommend this hike! Just make sure you pack plenty of water!

nice short walk when I went in February it began to snow and there was half inch of snow on the ground which was pretty cool

This is the most amazing trail. You get to hike right next to the water fall, which is beautiful, but prepared to get VERY wet! The steps going up the waterfall are very slippery, so you need shoes with good traction. Also, I would call this trail difficult rather than moderate. Many people were turning back half way up. Definitely worth it though!!

Amazing, high elevation so you need to be prepared and be in shape for this trail. Wear appropriate hiking shoes! I’ve seen people in flip flops and sneakers and they did not make it on the last leg of the trail.

Sunday Feb 11, 2018. Awesome hike with many tourists in street shoes.for a couple mile hike was unexpected ...

waterfalls running strong and the descriptions of steep grade with many steep steps is 200% accurate. One tricky part is walking alone rock face holding on for dear life with a 2ft wide walkway. Be ready for changing weather.

Great trail! We went in February and the weather was great. It was a difficult hike for me with the uphill climb but completely worth it!

Magnificent view!

Great hike did it with my two kids 6 and 3 it’s a killer hike but the water is freezing bring a good rain parka !!

Great trail the stairs can be tricky with people going up and down at the same time on the same tiny slippery stairs..

the stairs really does kick your butt, but the view is worth it!

The stairs will kick your butt... bring snacks and layers!!

Not really a hike (all flat) but worth seeing!

This trail is lots of fun but be ready for tons of stairs! Tons is an understatement.. regardless the views are amazing and it is well worth it!!

Love this trail and I’ve hiked it twice already.

A must do hike!!!!
