Taft point is one of my favorite hikes!!! Pretty easy trail and the views are amazing!!!! My favorite part of this trail is The drop down after getting to the top. Looks insane and really creepy to sit on the edge but feels amazing! gave the chills There are tons of spots to take awesome Instagram worthy photos :) loved it!!!

Did this trail August 2019. It was a beautiful trail and definitely showed off Yosemite’s beauty! Pretty busy trail though so don’t do it expecting to get away from the crowds. We did see a bear at the top of Nevada falls!

Very doable with toddlers during winter months and snow on the ground. We look forward to visiting again in the summer.

I had a GREAT time hiking from El Portal California to Foresta California. 14 miles, 6 hours, 2,500 elevation gain, multiple waterfalls, several bridges, one very dangerous crossing, lots of animal tracks, and beauty everywhere! I have ALWAYS wanted to do this hike! It was even better than I imagined!

Steps, a lot of steps, we are reasonable fit, it took us a bit more then 2hours up and a bit less on our way down (excluding the lunch break :) Nilice view on the waterfall. Too crowded for my taste but well marked and maintained. I really missed my polls on our way down.

Great trail- been up it multiple times, the views are just incredibly breathtaking! Go in the summer and you can swim in the upper pools.

Amazing introduction to Yosemite on the last day before it close for the Corona Virus. Challenging and rewarding experience.

Busy, but fantastic!

The mist trail was closed the day we did it but we went anyway. It wasn’t easy to find the trail because of about 18 inches of snow the day before. Surreal views though. Breathtaking every step of the way. At the top of Nevada falls, John Muir trail was closed but we went down anyway. Rough going because we were trudging through knee high snow for the first half mile. Eventually we got cover in the trees and made it easier. Once we reconnected at Clark’s point, a nice easy trip down. We jogged because it was a little chilly. Really a phenomenal trail even with the circumstances. But I wouldn’t advise someone to do the same.

One of the most beautiful trails I’ve ever hiked. Unfortunately due to conditions, the route down was closed so we had to go back the way we came.. which was difficult given how icy/muddy/snowy it was. Definitely worth it. Will be coming back for this trail soon!

Tough to describe. Magical hike. Very snowy and cloudy day. We started hiking up at 9am. Took us a bit over 4 hrs down and back going at a pretty good pace. Tough conditions and pretty challenging trail especially around the 2.5/3mile point and considering the amount of snow and lack of visibility at some parts. Got an Unreal view of the waterfall, mountains, trees, and the white scenery everywhere. One of us made it up to the top of the mountain but was disappointed by the lack of visibility from up there due to the weather (on a nicer day definitely something I would look forward to seeing though) . Way down was easier as we followed our footsteps. Not many people were hiking that today but quite a cool and challenging experience.

Great spot to stop and have lunch on your way into the park! Saw lots of rock climbers along the trail and the falls was very pretty and accessible

Lovely hike, insane workout, beautiful falls!

Increíblemente fácil pero no deja de ser una parada obligada si vas a Yosemite. La vista al final es increíble. Fui en marzo y estuvo muy lindo. Poca gente por la época y se disfruta mucho de la vista.

Es bastante extenuante pero no imposible. No tengo muy buena condición física y pude llegar hasta Nevada Falls en 3 horas, parando bastante a descansar y tomar fotos. Recomiendo MUCHO esta subida. Es increíble lo hermosa que es.

I've never written a review for anything in my life, what the mileage on this trail is a lie and I felt compelled to forewarn everyone else. if you start tracking mileage from where the shuttle drops you off, this trail is at least 20 miles. From the first trail marker that you see it's 9.5 miles to the summit meaning that it is a minimum of 19 MI. Completed this yesterday on 3/14/20, the trail is very well maintained and easily marked throughout the whole trip, other than when we got to the top snow and ice completely covered the trail. If we did not have GPS coordinates preset, we would not have been able to find the official end of the trail due to the amount of snow and ice. That being said there was only snow and ice for about the last mile and a half. 10/10 would recommend.

Probably the best trail I’ve seen so far here (second trip) and I only made it 40-50% through this one due to time and weather concerns.

Great stair workout and misty waterfall

Oooooo! Great hike! Stairs master. The view was worth it!

Great trail, good workout for the calves. Closed at 2.5-2.8 miles in.

Easy trail, not strenuous at all. Beautiful little easy hike, the lake is pretty dry as of 3-12, but still pretty. Good hike for people that don’t have good stamina. If your lookkkg for something challenging, find another trail.

I fked up again and didn't turn off my recording

Moderate 1.9 mile loop to giant sequoia’s. Took trail up (mostly uphill) and service road down. Hardly anyone here so shuttles not running.
