Great hike. The only problem is that part of the trail is flooded. The trail disappeared on the northwest side of the valley on the way back to our car. Thank God for GPS and "Find my Car". I forgot to turn on any hiking apps and my husband turned his on approximately 1 mile into the hike. We hiked 7 1/2 hours and more than 21 miles due to having to double back on the trail. Not too bad for 50 yr old newbies.

The distance makes the whole loop trail a moderate one.

Really enjoyed the walk. Very easy, lazy stroll. Not heavily trafficked.

Nice scenery. Go real early in the am. Later and you'll pass people in flip flops pushing strollers. Went when I was new to the game. There are much better trails in the park, if you don't mind the drive.

Keep to the hiker trails when you can. Less traffic, much better scenery, and water crossings if the falls are running high. Plan your trip to be around Half Dome Village at lunch. They have a market there and a burger/sandwich stand.

We did this hike at the end of November and it was stunning. Been coming to Yosemite every year since I was born and it's like home but had somehow never gone back past Mirror Lake. This time of year was stunning! Fall colors on the trees and snow on the ground. During the winter months make sure to have good grip on shoes as the ice on the bAck two bridges was quite hard to get up without sliding back down. Due to the weather as well very few people on the trail. Will do this one again for sure.
