    no wild flowers to report I guess we haven't had enough rain the hills are fairly green though so that's nice ,trails are easy to walk, not much else here

    nice work out with first half of trail uphill and second half all downhill prefer going clockwise as it's a less steeper and more gradual climb, there's a nice stop at the top with shade and benches then when you're down, a nice canopy of shade trees to finish your hike, prefer to go places where there's free parking, but it's only 3 dollars week day so that's not too bad.

    very nice walk around the lake lots of birds and great views of the lake and mountains I would rate it as easy,I guess the length makes it moderate,but it's nice and level for the most part,a combination of road,dirt road and trail recommend you take the short tree line trail on the south end for great views of the lake and mountains not much signage but you basically just walk around the lake

    John L reviewed Mirror Lake via Valley Loop Trail

    5 months ago

    started my hike at Yosemite village, went to half dome village,then on to mirror lake, absolutely beautiful there, from there I went to the ahwanee hotel where I ate my lunch on the back lawn and felt like a king.after lunch I set off for Yosemite falls,then walked through cooks meadow to sentinel bridge.came in February in hopes of seeing horsetail falls at sunset but alas we're back in a drought year and there just haven't been enough precipitation, but I'm not disappointed, after all I'm in Yosemite it's beautiful here and no crowds!

    5 months ago

    this hike was an absolutely wonderful way to spend a beautiful day took my little dog this time and he was a real trooper.I would rate this hike as moderate because we didn't stop at the observatory instead I decided to keep going to the summit of Mt Hollywood, not to be confused with Mt Lee which is where the Hollywood sign is.The 360 degree views are incredible, as is checking out the observator would be a great place to take friends from out of town,or your own staycation day trip and if you park on ferndell you won't have to pay 4 dollars an hour parking!Pack a lunch,water,and sun block.

    nice little park that has two separate dog parks, one for big the other for little dogs like mine behind that are the hills with numerous trails to explore, pretty steep going up but they are short and you are rewarded with killer views on a clear day.
