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.

The climb was tough! But the views were absolutely worth it. It felt like we were walking straight up the entire time, though. And it was too crowded (this was why I took a star off). It is a trail you need to do at least once in your lifetime though. The views of half dome, Nevada, and vernal falls were breathtaking.

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.

LOVE it!! Go early in the morning though.

If you want to see a waterfall but are short on time, this is one to see. Best time to go is in the spring/early summer when the snow is melting.

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

Takes about 10 miles to get away from the general population leaving from Happy Isles. But Cathedral Lakes is one of Americas best campsites. You could get there in a little over a half a day if you left from Tuolomne Meadows heading north to happy Isles.

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!

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!

This is one of my favorite hikes in the park. Amazing 360 views on the top of the dome. View of half dome Yosemite falls Nevada and vernal falls. And it’s absolutely stunning!! A Must do in Yosemite. It’s worth it to make it to the top if you take your time anyone can do it !!!

This is an amazingly wonderful hike. Has great views and a fairly easy/moderate skill level. Shady trees in most spots.

Nice view everywhere

Easy yet so fun

Tenaya Lake trail has beautiful views of stone mountains and snow-capped mountains well into July. Be prepared to walk through about a foot of water in the beginning and end of the trail. The only downside to this trail is that the view never seemed to change but since the view was so grand it didn’t seem to bother me much.

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!!

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!!!!
