    Jackie Koch reviewed Vernal and Nevada Falls via the Mist Trail

    If you can only do one hike at Yosemite (and you can do it during the week) do this one. It’s one of the most popular and I know why. You feel like it’s an entirely different park with the mist and rainbows! Hiking down the John Muir was also so much better than trying to beat the crowds down the stairs. Being your poles!

    We did this day 1 of our trip and man was it a toughy but so worth it. Definitely recommend hiking poles for the steep incline. You’ll also be in the sun most of the time if you start early. At the top we soaked our toes in the cool river while we ate our PB & J’s. Just hike a bit back past the bridge like you’re going to continue to Yosemite pointe. You’ll see the calm pools back there. Be prepared for nothing but stairs and climbing most of the hike. Felt so accomplished the whole vacation knowing we hiked to the top of that bad boy!

    We saw no people on this trail even though the parking lots were busy with tons of people. It’s totally worth the short trek to catch the view without other people around! We loved it, it’s very sunny so bring a hat!

    This was a great trail! Ended up being closer to 9.5 - 10 miles after getting to the top of glacier point and bumming around. We even came across a black bear, which was slightly unnerving but incredibly awesome at the same time. We scared it off and it continued down the mountain. We jogged a lot of the downhill straight always which was better for the knees. The most incredible views of the whole valley including all of Yosemite falls from top to bottom. Would highly recommend!
