    Jamie Wensley reviewed Vernal and Nevada Falls via the Mist Trail

    2 months ago

    First day in Yosemite, decided to hit this hike up the mist trail. Was a cool morning, so was concerned about how wet we were going to get, but wasn't that bad at all! The river and falls are raging this time of year, coming up to Vernal is where the mist hits hard. It's a pretty awesome experience. You get wet, head to toe, but not drenched. Then once you get to the top, amazing views! Mostly dry from here, it was a cloudy day but clothes dried up fast. Continued up to Nevada Falls. Gets a bit steeper but took out time, lots of switch back steps which a easy to work your way up. Liberty Cap mountain next to Nevada Falls is awesome sight as well. Gets a bit steep for final climb to top of Nevada, but once up, definitely worth it! Views are great! Took the John Muir trail back down, we walked under some small Falls that cover the trail at one point, but these were quick to get through. After that, smooth sailing all the way down!

    This hike is awesome, great views, rivers and waterfalls!
