Full flowing waterfalls with bridges at the base at the time of writing this. 5/19/18. Get soaked running across bridges but so refreshing during a hike. Best hike to date for me.

Easy trail and great with all the water. If you want to get close bring a rain coat

Awesome hike. The falls are beautiful.

This trail is a must do in Yosemite. The views are absolutely phenomenal for minimal work. It’s especially great in the spring when Yosemite Falls are really roaring.

Awesome hike, Wapama Fall are worth the trip.

Amazing place! No crowds, flowing waterfalls, blooming flowers and gorgeous spring weather!

the views on the way up are amazing. Also- read about the history of inspiration point, it's pretty impressive.

Amazing hike- in just a short, 1-mile easy hike, you're at the top of sentinel dome with 360 panoramic views. You can see el capitan, half dome, basket dome, north dome, yosemite falls, and many more amazing views! My favorite hike we did in Yosemite, even though it was so short!

Nice short little, easy hike- the ending is fairly amazing, getting to see the fissures and the dropoff at taft point make the hike!

Super easy with good views. A little touristy, but fun to stand in the mist

My favorite trail we did in Yosemite. It’s a short hike with an incredible view at the top, and not many people travel it. The last .2 miles or so are a steep climb up the mountain to the viewpoint but it’s well worth it, and fun!

Given that I’m more of a day trip hiker I would rate this probably moderate for the incline on the return trip. I pushed a jogger stroller though which was handy when our 3 year old decided she wanted a lift. The scenery is beautiful and shaded and you will find several groups of sequoias near the cabin. They are big but not like others we’ve seen. All in all we had great family time and would do it again.

Very easy walk straight to the bottom of Yosemite Falls - AMAZING view of the water fall as you walk to it - eventually you cross the bridge where the wind and mist soak you if you stand there long enough - we went in May when I think the water fall is at it’s peak strength.

We took our stroller and it was an easy leisurely walk.

Amazing place. Totally recommend. Be careful I saw a bear on this trail. Fee 30$ per car for 7 days

This trail is just inside of the park with limited parking.
We hiked to the river and turned around. The few sequoia trees you see are pretty cool but that is really all this trail offers.
It is mostly a slight down hill most of the way; so expect the up hill return trip.
Its a nice short hike.

The waterfall is incredible in the springtime!

A pretty easy hike, if you’re worried about tripping, cross the bridge and take the paved road. Do not attempt to walk on rocks. We saw a man slip and fall in and be taken away in an ambulance.

A must see! Especially in the Spring—the waterfall is insanely powerful and breathtaking! Pretty easy hike.

Super easy Trail for a good view.

Very crowded, but only takes about 20 minutes and you get a stunning view of the lower falls. Also: lots of spray right now.

Not too difficult a climb. There are some places on the trail where footing is a bit sketchy (near trail head at parking lot). Apart from this area the trail is a moderate climb over the 1.2 miles ascending. Weather dependent (bring water), that should go without say. Beautiful rock work above the half way point. When you get to the top if you can’t see the valley for the trees move around for a clear panorama. They are easy to find if you move a little.

Spectacular!!!!

dope trail did it may 5th only saw 3 other souls in this 12.5 mi R/T hike. follow the markers to not get lost. the frozen lake at the end was amazing and freaking gorgeous most def do this again in the hotter days. didn't see any wild life but oh well loved this hike!

Good warm hike. Weather was cool and it was a pleasant leisurely hike

Great hike with terrific views. This trail is well traveled but not overly crowded. There is not a lot of shade so take sunscreen and a hat. We hiked on April 28th and the falls were flowing. We got soaked.
I would say this trail is between easy and moderate. Lots of rocky areas and a some hills in the beginning.

Hiked this trail on 4/28/18. It was amazing! Stunning views the entire trail! Loved getting splashed (probably more like showered) by the waterfall! I would say it's easy to moderate. It wasn't crowded at all and the weather was great. It's definitely a hike you have to do once in your lifetime. Easily became one of my favorites!
