Amazing hike, falls, and final destination at the top of the falls!

Great trail, if you doing a full loop it is probably too hard for younger kids and Its just over 12 miles. Make sure you have plenty of water.

Do yourself a favor, take the bus to Glacier Point and hike all the way back down to the valley. You can hit up Nevada and Vernal falls on the way down, plus a bonus of crossing over Illilouette falls on the way to Nevada. This hike is for the most part all down hill, so for those who find going up the trail to Vernal and Nevada, this will be much more doable. The views are spectacular!

An absolute must for first timers, soak your feet at the top in the ice cold water until they’re numb, it’ll make the trip down easier.

Absolutely wonderful! A little tough if you aren’t used to hiking a lot but the views are well worth it!

An absolute must! An amazing hike to soak in the magnitude that is Yosemite. If hiking in the summer, start early to avoid the sun as well as the crowds. As others before have, I suggest taking the John Muir trail back down to avoid the crowds and the wet rock steps going back down the trail. This is one of the most beautiful hikes I’ve ever done! .....when you do it early.

Nice little nature trail some steep portions but really nice view points. Great for pictures and a nice view of Tenaya Lake.

This is my first time going to Nevada falls. I've done the Vernal Falls part of the trail multiple times. I loved making the entire loop. It was a beautiful hike that I can't wait to do again.

First time to Yosemite and First hiking trail...I loved it great work out..

This hike was surprisingly beautiful and away from the crowds. We went to watch the sunset & star gaze. There were a handful of people there, but we were alone not long after the sun started going down. Not a very difficult hike for someone in average shape. Very short & not too much of an uphill climb. Definitely suggest passing the general parking area for the trail and continuing down the road just a bit until you get to a service road on the left hand side. There is a small parking area directly across the street. You can hike this service road right up to the trail which will cut a good portion of the distance off of your hike:-) The 360 degree view of Yosemite is well worth it! Just stunning!

we just finish the trail in vernal waterfall, it's so beautiful there and I will give 5 stars for the trail!

Possibly my favorite hike in the world!

Great little walk for an amazing view of Half Dome and the valley floor.

Great little hike! Pretty leisurely most of the way, the last little stretch is more difficult because it gets really steep but that only lasts a couple minutes while you get to the summit.

Really enjoyed how scenic this trail was. Great for kids! The two twin bridges were lovely and after a warm day it was nice to hang out in the river before finishing up the trail. We even saw donkeys passing though on the bridge. The meadow is breathtaking.

Great views. It’s a great trail of you are a little short on time. It’s not as crowded as the trails from the valley floor.

Great warm-up hike to start your day. Do this hike every day of your visit to get the juices flowing.

Family hike in mid June...on a Wednesday. Got to the trail head parking lot around 8am and there were still a few parking spots left. Much later and we would have ended up at the Yosemite Village lot.

You’re looking at this hike because you know how amazing the waterfalls are so I’m not going to comment on that other than it’s definitely worth going all the way up to the to of Nevada Falls.

We followed the Mist Trail up to the top of Nevada Falls. There was plenty of people on the trail but It wasn’t crowded that time of day. The steps heading up to Vernal were very wet (from the mist). It took about 3 hours to get to the top of Nevada...we were hiking with our 11 year old twins and 8 year old daughter. It was tough for the 8 year old but she made it with minimal complaints. We had lunch at the top and then decided to take John Muir trail back down...HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS!!! Looking at a trail map it added about a mile on to the hike vice going back the way we came, but it avoided having to go down the wet stairs and going against the traffic coming up. I’m positive it was faster then heading back the way we came. The John Muir trail joins the Mist Trail about 0.5 miles below Vernal Falls. Once we got back on the Mist Trail (now about 1pm) it was very crowded.
If you are concerned about the wet steps or step switch back you can take the John Muir trail up as well, but you will miss Vernal Falls and some great views along the Mist Trail.

Amazing views!

Easy hike but beware of a bear that has been seen around the area after you turn right at the sight of sentinel dome.

Very easy paved trail, done several years ago! Very very crowded. Not the way I like to enjoy nature but is great for all skill levels and the falls are pretty. Just felt very much like a "tourist attraction".

An easy Yosemite hike

Best hike ever! Took misty rail up to vernal falls and it was very crowded all day. Make sure you go early to avoid the crowd.

Our first warm up hike last week in Yosemite. Seeing any Giant Sequoia is worth the hike. Paved road as a trail. Only a hand full of giant Sequoias. If you like this hike you’ll love Mariposa Grove of Giant Sequoia.

Finished this hike in about 5 hours with lots of stopping and admiring the waterfalls. I was very thankful we only went up the Mist trail since the stairs seemed somewhat precarious/slippery to go down. If you’re inclined to spend more time on this hike, bring a swim suit! There are great pools both at Vernal and Navada falls, but of course be extremely careful of the strong currents. Both falls were really beautiful, but if you had to do only one, Vernal is really impressive and beautiful. Luckily it’s also an easier hike :) I did this hike 5 month pregnant and did fine. There were also several kids doing this hike. If you’re in reasonably good shape, it’s very doable. Give yourself the day, plenty of breaks and water, and you’ll see some of the best of what Yosemite has to offer!

Beautiful hike! From the valley floor to Vernal is harder than Vernal to Nevada. I enjoy using the JMT to avoid the stairs on the mist trail, especially coming down. This is a popular trail and you will be around a lot of people.
