    Beautiful hike!

    One of the best hikes ever!!

    Beautiful hike - we went the reverse way- Merced to Vogelsang. . Absolutely stunning. It’s a long day with a lot of altitude gain - but the beauty is surrounding you.

    It’s a grind and busy with many people. If the falls are full, it’s a delightful break to get misted .

    Great views - nice walk.

    Busy busy trail - but spectacular views and the falls are impressive. It is a bit of a grind going up with a fair amount of stairs but so worth it. The hike down (John Muir trail) is shaded.

    This hike is a grind in the sun. The views are good - but the steepness of the hike and the sun make it a one and done for me.

    This is one of my favorite hikes ever! The views are spectacular- - the vistas just keep coming! Love this hike!

    Nice hike. The falls are beautiful and it’s great to soak your feet after the hike up.

    Busy trail with walkers, runners, dogs, bikes. I love that it is so close to my house - always a nice quick get away.

    Nice hike - very busy. The lake is spectacular and it reflects the peak beautifully.

    We got on the trail early morning. When the trail split we went left.. we hiked up to the abandoned homestead/building. All total we got 8 miles round trip with an elevation gain of 900 up and then 900 down on the return. The mosquitos were getting intense by the late morning.

    Beautiful hike to get an overview of the swamp - lovely orchids and bromeliads.

    I only hiked to the waterfalls - very pretty - it is a paved path so not really “hiking” but nice and enjoyable.

    Very pretty hike - lots of people.

    This is a great hike - with exceptional views and varied terrain. Try to stay at the high camps but if you can’t - go get a permit for back country camping. The deception from Merced to Vogelsang is fantastic!

    Beautiful hike along the river - lots of people and dogs but still nice.

    Great hike - expect lots of people until you get to Wall Street. Iconic views. You will be hiking in a river bed on wet river rock so wear good shoes to prevent falling. Make sure there is no chance of rain!

    Love this hike - start early before the heat comes on. This is not for a person who is scared of heights. But you can hike far up before you have to use cables and chains. Great views of the valley!

    Great hike! Wonderful views! Plan on lunch at the tea house - it is fun and yummy. After lunch go past the tea house further up the trail and get some great views of the glaciers!

    Our family hiked this for my 60th birthday. We had a party of 10 and most of us were between 58-68. Everyone was an experienced hiker. and had trekked around the world. That said, this hike is very doable if you train for it, acclimate in Cusco for a few days and take it slow. The rewards are many! This is an amazing experience- a highlight in my hiking experience!

    This trail is tough - very steep. Also it is in the sun and can have bugs. There are also many stairs. I would bring poles. With all the great hikes in this park - this is perhaps my least favorite. It’s a one and done for me.
