The views are excellent. We arrived before 5 pm on a Friday and hiked down from White Wolf TH for over 5 miles before resting for the night. The next day we hiked all the way past the Waterwheel Falls before looking for campsites. Along the route, there are some really nice places to stay for the night. On Sunday we hiked to Tuolumne Meadows and got a ride from a nice father and son team to the junction with White Wolf. The only regret is that AllTrails could not record most of the route. Once we descended into the forest, it lost GPS signal. So it only recorded the beginning and ending part of the whole trip!
