    Patricia Rytlewski reviewed Fern Lake Trail

    11 days ago

    Bluebird day Sept 6. 830 am ascent. No bugs at Fern lake, windy and sunny. Had the place to ourselves. A few lupines in bloom, red berries coming in on the bushes on the upper part of the trail. Perfectly doable, take your time. Hiking poles very helpful, especially going down hill. Great hike. Toward the moderate side of a hard hike.

    Patricia Rytlewski reviewed Vernal and Nevada Falls via the Mist Trail

    14 days ago

    4.5 hours. Hit the trail 730am. About 2 hrs to Nevada falls. 30 min to eat and enjoy. Two hrs down via John Muir. Because we got an early start we were in the shade most of the time. That mattered.... used 25oz water. Unhappily, I carried almost 4 litres based on another review. Would have used a lot more water if Iater in the day. 90% of the crowd did not go past Vernal falls... Water flow was low as expected but still very nice. Going down the Mist trail with its large stone stairs would have been hard on our knees. We retuned via the John Muir, mostly just sloping down, few stairs. Moderate is a fair rating of this round trip.

    Patricia Rytlewski reviewed Mirror Lake via Valley Loop Trail

    15 days ago

    Don't walk. Rent a bike and get there quick... too hot in early September to walk that far for the minimal payoff. It's a small pond by the time Labor Day rolls around. Huge boulders all over. Kids can blow off a lot of energy here. It's a pond... this is Yosemite... do this as a day off of hiking, let's rent bikes and cover lots of area.

    It's a nice orientation view to the valley. Quite the drive back there. Got there 715am. Lots of parking spaces left on Labor Day! Sunlight wasn't great for photography at that early hour. Ate breakfast and took in the view.

    Solid 3. Did this loop to kill time before we headed to the valley. Saw 2 deer. No bugs. Nice views.

    Labor Day was hot, dry and dusty. Three to 4 minute ascent. There are better hikes at Yosemite.

    Hiked the lovely snow covered, relatively packed trail in hiking boots past the big falls where there were two ice climbers, through the pines, then aspens, over the rivers wooden bridge and eventually to the smaller falls. Was a nice reward. the views of the valley were awesome. At 10 am we were the only car in the upper lot. lot was full when we returned. moderate rating suits this short trail.
