    Patrick Oswald reviewed Corduroy Hills

    Wow. This was not an easy hike. Not for the faint of heart, especially on a hot day. View are incredible about a mile and a half in, then little to no views the rest of the hike.

    Great for training and cardio.

    IF YOU HAVE THE TIME TO GO IN THE NEXT 2 WEEKS, GO GO GO! The Waterfall is roaring, and it is absolutely incredible to experience this hike at peak waterfall conditions.

    Went on Saturday May 27th. Started at 7:20 AM from the parking lot, made it to the lookout spot atop Yosemite Falls at 9:45 AM. Made it back down to the parking lot at 12 PM. A little under 5 Hours round trip, pretty stoked on the time/pace.
    The actual hike was just switchback after switchback after switchback. The first two miles is shaded, but the last 1.5 miles is in the sun, and elevation continues to get steeper as you near the top.

    Starting the hike early was very important, once the heat started up, you could definitely feel the combination of sun and elevation taking the wind out of your sails. Going up, maybe passed 10 people, but on the way down, I lost count but easily passed over 200 people. The view at the top is breath taking, but I think next time I want to make it all the way to Yosemite point, which I think is only about a mile more added round trip.

    Absolutely unbelievable.
