    Great conditioner! This trail is no slouch. Views are minimal for all of the work invested. Not enough payoff.

    Wonderful views. The snow is mostly melted and is easy to cross.

    Mer Smitty reviewed Ice Lake Trail

    This is a wonderful trail and is snow free. The bugs were especially bad at the campsites to the right of the trail when you are headed in. Crossing the Lake's outlet seemed like the better option for camping, so that you catch the breeze off of the lake. Also, leave enough time to explore around the lake. It's bigger than it looks and there are a bunch of cool areas to explore.

    Mer Smitty reviewed Fern Lake Trail

    12 months ago

    The Fern Lake trail was a wonderful short hike. The lake is beautiful. Hiking around the lake offered views of magnificent inlet waterfall. Due to the short length, we decided to also do Yost Lake. It was a waste of time. The lake is completely surrounded by vegetation and does not provide any unobstructed views. Spend the extra time soaking in the beauty at Fern Lake instead.

    Mer Smitty reviewed Upper Yosemite Falls Trail

    12 months ago

    This was a beast of hike, but worth every second of it. There are many people on this trail and a lot of camaraderie to help the hike up in the heat. We noticed many people running out of water, as did we. We drank from the running creeks, without filtering, with no ill side effects. Though, we would not recommend drinking from the creek at the very top unfiltered. After the first real sighting of the waterfalls, most of the people thinned out. We only saw a about 10% of the original hikers finish the Upper Falls. We loved this hike. It was worth the work.

    This was a great hike. My favorite section was Mist Falls because you get heavily misted And get to cool down. I loved this hike!

    Mer Smitty reviewed Hetch Hetchy Loop via Lake Vernon

    12 months ago

    This trail was not my favorite. It felt grueling and very hot, with little pay off. The lake access is limited due to vegetation. However, the granite surrounding scenery was pretty impressive. It wasn't recommended by the rangers to cross Falls Creek because the water level is much higher than normal, therefore we could not complete the entire loop. That may have changed my rating. Going to just Lake Vernon and back from Hetch Hetchy was not worth the heat and work.

    Mer Smitty reviewed Glacier Point Trail

    We took the Glacier Point tour up to Glacier Point to avoid having to climb the Panorama trail. From Glacier Point we descended the Panorama trail to the Mist trail and back Yosemite Valley. Descending this trail was a great way to see the views and not over work yourself.
