simple loop that takes you to an arch. lovely scenery but wouldn't recommend due to the large crowds.

Beautiful views of the valley. We used this loop in August as a leg-stretch the day after we did Half Dome. Flat and very easy, and you can do whatever parts of the loop you want to do and make it however short or long you want, really.

Pretty trail in winter.

It’s full of snow now!!! So beautiful!

Short and sweet! Easy walk to the bottom of the falls.

Really fast if you know what you are doing.

Was quick and easy... nice view!

An easy hike, good for just about anyone with moderate abilities. This is a must do if you are in the area.

beautiful fall. very short and worth doing with kids

not really a hike but a short walk but worth stopping and checking specially if you have little kids as we do. they loved it. we did it on December and it was impressive. the little creek was frozen adding additiona attractive

lovely easy hike, not much of a lake but the views and that forest is totally worth it.

This is a must-stop if you're in the area, or em route to Death Valley. the trail is very short, and often becomes a choose your own adventure due to the sparce & oft deteriorated markings. However, every deviant bend in your path is rewarded with a private slice of the best views of Mt. Whitney & some of the most unique & enchanting rock formations.

Mobius Arch is a popular but short loop. The arch gives the trail its name, but as you hike, enjoy the otherworldly rock formations. Also, make sure to pause and enjoy the snow-capped Eastern Sierras including the majestic Mt. Whitney.

Fairly easy, though there is a paved road side and an unpaved side that’s a little more challenging.

Great views of half dome. Areas to stop and throw rocks in the water, if that’s of interest. Decent picnic type hike. Still open and clear in the winter.

Park at north pines camp ground if you can. There’s also a shuttle stop if you are able to get on the shuttle.

This trail during late December is a bit snowy and slippery near the top. The view is beautiful at about the halfway point and in my opinion there is no need to do the whole thing thing if you don’t feel like it since the view is practically the same. If you go during snow bring good footwear and at least a hiking stick to avoid slipping. I would do this again in spring.

Hard not to give every hike in Yosemite 5 stars, this is a super easy short hike but great to see lower Yosemite falls, we did this back in October so the falls were just a trickle but beautiful regardless

epic view

Beautiful hike with a steep incline and great views of the lakes! The train descends to crystal lake where you can hang out and enjoy the water. It’s unique because I think you can only access that lake through a hike, therefore the area is relaxing and quiet! We did this hike after driving up from LA and it was perfect because of the short amount of time needed and the great scenic rewards!

Just beautiful. Not many people in the winter months, at least, so a peaceful walk alongside the river. Stunning rock scapes and a scenic bridge over the river at the half way point. The mirror image was worth everything!

Make sure you rock scramble to the left of the Falls. There you can get away from some the crowds as well as see the Yosemite waterfall pool at the bottom. It’s a perfect snack or picnic stop with the mist hitting you.

We didn't park at the correct trail head so we added an extra mile but besides that, the trail is paved and very beautiful. It just rained this morning (dec 18th) so the flow was strong!

Awesome views. Great way to take in Yosemite Valley.

A short; worthwhile hike to escape the crowds of tunnel view. Can find a few spots where the trees are not obstructing a full view of The Valley. Arrive early for parking.

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

Easy and fun hike and amazing 360 degrees view of Yosemite at the end. Loved it!

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.

Great views!
