Fun trail. Unlike the rest of the park, this isn't too bad as far as going up and down long stretches. We started on 6/13/18 and camped just before you reach the junction that heads down to Nevada Falls. The next day we hiked up to Half Dome and then all the way down through the mist trail. Word of warning, our group lives at sea level and we aren't seasoned hikers. I'm 6'2" 275, and by the time I got to the parking lot I was exhausted. Make sure you are in good shape or you'll suffer. And bring a water filter!!! And be prepared to get wet crossing a few streams. At one crossing we had to cross barefooted and some slipped and went all the way under.
